Sunday saw the much anticipated Out and About trip to Swinton Hall for the bird of prey photography day. The day lived up to our expectations. We were met by professional photographer, Jed, and bird handler, Mandy. They took us to meet their plethora of owls and other birds of prey. Other than a short lunch break, the six hours was filled taking photos of the magnificent birds whilst receiving advice and help from Jed and lots of information on the birds from Mandy. It really was an unique experience as we were able to get so close to the animals and place them in their natural environment.
We are looking to run the trip again in Spring.
A selection of images from the day can be seen below alongside a few 'behind the scenes' ones too.
