Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) Hide 2023 blog#3:Exmoor photography kingfisher hide (exmoorphotographycourse.co.uk)
Lots of activity with all our clients having some great opportunities for Kingfisher photography. Although we have been lucky with the weather, we did have one slow day due to unexpected, horrible weather conditions; it is summer right?
Obviously, visits are never guaranteed but as I ask everyone at the morning briefing ‘keep as quiet as possible, silence should mean kingfisher activity.’ This has been the case, so well done everybody.
Although I’m starting to feel the 4.30 am starts for the last 6 weeks, I still get a massive buzz sharing this experience with other likeminded people.
Alison and I would also like to thank the private landowners who has been incredibly helpful and supportive.
