Some photos from my day at this Trust which cares for hawks and other birds of prey.

All taken with the Z7ii and 70-200 S.

The shots of the kites were taken with the Nikon 80-100 with ZTZ.

Is this the one in Hampshire (with a connection to Chris Packham)?

Some excellent shots here Anthony.
I've been there a couple of times - they did an entertaining Owl flying display between the trees in the woodland area last time I visited.

Anthony:

Very nice.  Really like the shot of the owl, when perched in the tree. Amazing to get so close with such a short focal length!  Benefits of that environment.

Amazing captures!  To me, the last one stands out from the already amazing others.

Thomas, Colin, Randy, Akira, Paco, many thanks for your kind comments.

Colin, yes this is the place you mention. I went there on a course organised by the UK Nikon School, which was excellent. The Trust also organises photography days by prior appointment. Organised photography days are definitely worthwhile, as you have much better access and a lot more flying.

Here are the next two shots in the series after the last one.
