Malcolm's Special Custom Photography Day on Anglesey

Today we had a rather different tour, a custom photographic tour. Malcom had joined us on a tour in Norfolk and really enjoyed the experience. With a new camera to have fun with Malcom asked if we could run a custom photographic trip for him in North Wales, of course we could!

Our first day started early with some pre-breakfast birding. We visited RSPB Conwy, a lovely calm warm morning and lots of birds were on the reserve. With perfect morning light, reflections and blue sky Malcom was soon happily firing away with his new 300mm lens and camera.

A stunning second-summer Mediterranean Gull dropped in and joined a small flock of Black-headed Gull and Malcom's camera clicked and clicked again. As we watched the Med Gull we noticed a Common Gull was also in the group, both good records for June here.

A drake Wigeon was also unexpected in mid-summer and other wildfowl included Teal, Shoveler, Gadwall and Tufted Duck. A pair of Great crested Grebes were a fine subject for the camera on the still water with a wall of green reed as a back ground, lovely picture.

We enjoyed over forty species of bird and a lot of photos taken it was then back to the B&B for a superb breakfast.

Full of great food we then headed over to Anglesey and watched terns at very close range! It was a real challenge to take pin sharp shots as the terns whizzed low over our heads. We got a few pictures that we were quite pleased with, with our bridge-camera, see below. Malcom was able to really nail the terns with his 300mm lens, brilliant stuff! All the pictures here are taken with our bridge camera, Panosonic Lumix.

Bringing home three fish at once: that's going to be a very well-filled Sandwich!

RSPB South Stack is a wonderful location in summer, stunning scenery and teaming with birds. We had spectacular views of Peregrine Falcon, filling the Leica scope, every feather detail in perfect light. A bit far for the camera sadly but what a bird! Puffins bobbed on the sea, Rock Pipits sang around us and Gannets passed offshore. Harbour Porpoise were feeding off the lighthouse in the tide race.

We then enjoyed great views of Black Guillemots in the afternoon sun. Great to spend time enjoying these handsome auks as Malcom's camera whirred. Still time for one more stop, we spent some time in the hide at Aber Ogwen which again gave Malcom some great photo ops at close range.

We really enjoyed the different style of tour today, taking longer at each site as Malcom took some brilliant images. If you would like a custom photo tour just drop us a line and we will do the rest.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
