Red Kite and Buzzard Photography Overview

Thanks to conservation efforts, the Red Kite population, which was once close to extinction, has seen a dramatic resurgence. Their successful re-introduction in Scotland and certain parts of England has been a triumph for wildlife preservationists.

Hunted for centuries due to misunderstandings of their scavenging habits and claims that they spread disease, the Red Kite still faces many threats. In some areas, their population remains rare, making Wales their best chance for visibility. Here, the Red Kite proudly serves as the National Bird.

In mid-Wales, we are thrilled to be photographing this majestic species and celebrating their continued existence.

What will be covered

Photography doesn’t have to be intimidating! This course is designed to help both newcomers and experienced shutterbugs alike. Whether you’re a complete novice struggling to attach a lens, or an experienced photographer wanting to explore new techniques, this course has it all.

This day will start at 12:30pm when Gigrin Farm opens as so we can cover settings and your ability’s before the feeding time.

We’ll be looking at all aspects of camera settings, from shutter speed and aperture to manual settings for those who wish to brave the challenge. We’ll also dive into composition techniques and go over any gear you may need. All the while, one-on-one instruction will be available to ensure that you have a comprehensive learning experience.

New customers will also receive a gift pack worth over £10

As for the lens required you will need a 200-300mm or more as we will be some distance away from the birds. Bridge cameras or above work the best for this type of photography. You may also wish to bring along a bean bag to rest your camera on, extra memory cards, batteries, and lens cloths and camera cleaning equipment may also be helpful.
