Hello every one
Here is one that you can’t really pass up! I went to martin mere wildfowl and wetlands trust on Saturday and bumped into Andy Wooldridge the manager of the site, as we talked he asked me would I like to get some photographers’ together to come to take photos of the new ride on the boats, it can hold up to 5 in a boat and there is 6 boats in all.

The idea is to go around getting as many wild life shots as they can in the boats?

He said at the end of the day we all email him or send him the photographs of the day and he will pick 20 photos to use at the park, and display them in the park for all to see.

So all I need is some of you who would like to go into the park and do this challenge? and hopefully get there photos and name up on the wall.

I need to fix a date yet but if any of you would like to set one that’s fine with me, just need to do it in 2 or 3 weeks time but its got to be a Saturday. Here a link


Thanks Puma

Shaun

I could well be up for this depending on which Saturday

I assume the admission price is as per the website - is there an extra cost for the boats

Anyone up for car sharing - from where I live it is a 130+ mile round trip approx - I don't mind a bit of a detour to pick people up or meet up and jump in one car - any possible takers

Dan we usually have a full house but once we know the date I can advise if there may be room with us but can't promise anything yet.

Regards

14th July ok for me as well guys

I`m really looking forward to this one, getting out on a boat should give us a great opportunity to photograph birds in areas not normally accessible to the general public!.

Check list,

Life jacket
flares
Fishing rod
Swimming trunks

We'd better be careful getting on a boat with that Shaun Wilson fellow. He'll be pushing us all out of the way to get the best shots MAN OVERBOARD!

Apart from that it should be a great day,

This won't affect him Cliff, he wears them all the time to get in training for his mountain climbing exploits. He's got legs bigger than my body!
