My second passion for photography is Birds Of Prey, unfortuantely I don’t ahve the patience or the time to head off into the countryside and wait for an ellusive Bird Of Prey to come into view, I also don’t have reuqired lengths to get some of the fantastic photos that we see on the web!

Luckily an answer is at hand, within a 30 minute drive from my home is The Hawk Conservancy Trust, just outside of Andover, Hampshire. With friendly staff and a great selection of birds which are flown daily I pop down when I can to try and play with the camera and practice my panning technique, with the odd portrait thrown in for good measure…


There are 3 main flying displays throughout the day focusing on different birds from around the world and owls to close the day. The guys fly the birds well and the audience is birds are flown as close to the audience as possible.



The Hawk Centre is a great family day out and easy to get to…
