BIRDS IN FLIGHT WITH OLYMPUS – ARGATY RED KITES – FULLY BOOKED

13th September @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

£40

We’ve teamed up with central Scotland’s only red kite feeding station; Argaty Red Kites to bring you a photography workshop like no other!

Whether you’ve bought an OM-D E-M1X and are keen to get some hints on photographing birds in flight, you’re an E-M1 Mark II owner thinking of upgrading, or a non-Olympus user who would like the chance to try out the system, this is the event for you.

We have arranged some exclusive flying displays to give you the chance to practice capturing birds in flight in a controlled environment. There will also be the opportunity to try out the E-M1X and longer lenses if you have not had the chance yet.

Watching from a purpose-built hide, you will have the opportunity to view the spectacle of the kites’ flying acrobatics set against the backdrop of the hill fields. Kites tend to feed on the wing and so you will see them swoop down to seize the food in their talons before they soar upwards again, sometimes being challenged by another bird for their haul.

Other birds you may be lucky enough to see include peregrine, kestrel, buzzards, sparrow hawk and hen harriers as well as a wide variety of smaller birds (a recent survey recorded over a hundred species on the farm!)

Ticket price: £40

The date to etch into your diary is Friday 13th September 2019 when the event will begin at 10:30 and with the event finishing at approximately 16:00.

Event notes: Lunch will be included – if you have any special dietary requirements please let us know when booking.
