Itinerary
 
All species of Birds of Prey are very elusive in the UK and can prove very difficult subjects for wildlife photographers.  Buzzards can be very nervous so you will need to very quiet and keep still . Please note this is not a tuition day, you’re in the hide with other people.
 
 
Directions:
 
Our Buzzard hide is located in Worcestershire near the town of Droitwich.  It is very close to the Junction 5 on the M5 motorway, once you’ve taken the signs for Bromsgrove, go under the motorway and you need to take your first turning on your left and you will see a McDonalds the postcode is WR9 7PA.  On the morning  Darren (mobile no: 07850878370) will meet you in the car park at McDonalds at 8 am. It is then a short drive to the farm where the Buzzards are located . It is important that you pay attention to how Darren sets the perch up so that you can get the best out of the day and also to have a varied selection of images it is best to change the perch throughout the day.  You can get in and out of the hide but obviously this will disturb the Buzzard so it is best to only get out if its essential .The buzzards are very site faithful and will return but it takes them longer to come back if they’re disturbed so it is in your best interest to stay in the hide as much as you can
 
.What to Bring: 
 
 
The vast majority of your time will be spent in the hide; in terms of clothing you will need some warm clothes because it can be cold at this time of year.  It is also a 

5 minute walk to the hide so please bring waterproof clothing too because you don’t want to get wet before the day even starts.  You will need a good pair of strong walking boots or wellington boots. The weather is difficult to predict at this time of the year, it could be cold especially in the early morning and then gets warmer as the day progresses, so bring hats and gloves as well. You will need to bring your own food and drinks as there is no cafeteria on the site so a thermal flask with hot tea or coffee is recommended.  Please note there are no toilet facilities on the site either because of the remote location.  

 
 
 
Camera Equipment:
 
In terms of camera kit you'll need a bean bag, the longest lens you have (300mm or 500mm + convertor would be our recommendation/choice) plenty of flash cards and batteries.  There is no electricity in the hide so please make sure that you have spare batteries that are fully charged because on a good day you can take lots of great images.
 
This is a great workshop which will give you an amazing chance to photograph this beautiful raptor found in the UK.
