Winter Birding And Photography Experience

  • North & East Yorkshire
  • from £70.00 (see pricing table below)

Throughout the winter months the Yorkshire Coast is a hotspot for sea ducks, divers, grebes, white-winged gulls and waders. The inland lakes and pools are a strong holding for wintering waterfowl, with large numbers of ducks and geese moving in and along the coast.

Our knowledge of the Yorkshire Coast will take you to the best places along this beautiful coastline ensuring your chances of obtaining some lovely images and finding some key winter bird species.

Key Species: - Goosander, Red-breasted Merganser, Red-throated Diver, Great Northern Diver, Great Crested Grebe, Little Grebe, Slavonian Grebe, Goldeneye, Eider, Gadwall, Pochard, Teal, Tufted Duck, Shoveler, Smew, Pink-footed Goose, White-fronted Goose, Mediterranean Gull, Glaucous Gull and Iceland Gull, Oystercatcher, Turnstone, Dunlin, Curlew, Purple Sandpiper, Knot, Redshank, Ringed Plover, Grey Plover, Bar-tailed Godwit and Peregrine Falcon.

This experience is ideal for those wanting to learn more about their cameras and for gaining a good understanding of the principles and technique involved in wildlife photography and bird watching. Shutter speed, ISO settings, aperture, depth of field, angles, composition and approaching subjects are all covered. This experience is also ideal for more experienced photographers looking to find and photograph new species and learn about fieldcraft and behaviours of these different species.

Sometimes the weather can be challenging on the Yorkshire Coast as we  look at these elements, so we work on how to adjust the camera settings to compensate.
