Farne Isles seabirds 

Come and photograph one of Britain’s truly great wildlife events, the breeding birds colonies on the Farne Islands, arctic terns, common terns, sandwich terns, razorbills, guillemots, shags and of course the sea parrot or tommy noddy as the locals call, the Atlantic puffin. Most of the birds can be seen and photographed at very close quarters. The workshop will show you the techniques to photograph the birds in their breeding habitat, in flight in addition to the technical requirements for successful wildlife photography, exposure compensations, control of shutter speeds and aperture settings to get the best out of your trip. The boat trip out to Inner Farne will take us past the seal colony giving opportunities to get close up images of the grey seals.
