I had a fantastic day yesterday with Will Cheung, editor of Photography Monthly, who joined me to photograph woodpeckers at Scrag Copse. The birds performed superbly and I think Will, a veteran of many photographic events, was genuinely impressed with the proximity as well as the natural situations we were able to put the birds in. We managed to photograph 8 species in all including full-frame portraits of nuthatches and great spotted woodpeckers. Hopefully, the piece that Will puts into the magazine will mean a lot more bookings in 2009 on the Woodland Birds photographic days.
