TOUR: SEABIRDs AND SWAMP LANDS – BIRD PHOTOGRAPHY WEEKEND
19-21 MAY 2018

DATE: MAY 19 - 21, 2018

PAYMENT: EFT Transfer via online banking or contact Craig to make alternative arrangements. 
INCLUSIONS: All travel from Adelaide to the South East and return, photography instruction, private accommodation, pelagic boat trip, entry fees to Bool Lagoon, all breakfasts, and lunch on Sunday.

This three day tour to the south-east of our state will take you to two of South Australia's best wetlands, including the RAMSAR listed Bool Lagoon and out to the continental shelf to photograph a diverse range of pelagic (sea-going) bird species including albatrosses, petrels and storm-petrels, shearwaters, jaegers and more. You will come away from this tour with memory cards full and improved bird photography skills and knowledge. May is a peak month for seabirds off the south coast and we should encounter a wide range of species to photograph. And there's always the chance of some rarities! 

At Pick Swamp, our first stop early on Saturday afternoon, we'll have plenty of opportunity to photograph a diverse range of waterfowl, with Freckled Duck, Shoveler, Blue-billed and Pink-eared Ducks all possible. We'll also have opportunities to photograph songbirds and parrots with Golden-headed Cisticola, Southern Emu-wren, Striated Fieldwren, Beautiful Firetail, and Blue-winged and Elegant Parrot all possible. Both Pick Swamp and Bool Lagoon near Naracoorte will provide good opportunities to photograph Brolga and the more elusive but regular Australasian Bitterns. The species diversity at Bool Lagoon is staggering with 182 species recorded. Along with the high numbers or waterbirds, it's also a good place to photograph raptors such as Swamp Harrier, Wedge-tailed Eagle, Little Eagle, Kites, Goshawks and more.

I'm really excited to be working with the fantastic team at Inala Nature Tours on Bruny Island to bring you this photography workshop and tour in Southern Tasmania. Highlights of the tour include a flight to the South West Wilderness to photograph the critically endangered and incredibly beautiful Orange-bellied Parrot, a species on the brink of extinction, a pelagic cruise to photograph albatross and other seabird species, and several days on Bruny Island staying at the beautiful Inala Private Reserve, where all of Tasmania’s endemic bird species can be seen and photographed.

This workshop is suitable for photographers of all levels. Participants will benefit from both group and one-on-one photography and post-processing tuition from Craig and ecological education from a specialist Inala guide. This combination will give you an exceptional experience. You will gain a better understanding of nature photography techniques, a better ability to use your own equipment and an immersion in knowledge of the flora, fauna, habitats and landscapes of beautiful Tasmania.  A beautiful photograph is one thing, being able to tell your friends and family about the behaviour and context of the wildlife you have photographed is even more fulfilling. 

This tour includes all travel (including the return flight to Melaleuca in the remote SW of the state, and the pelagic boat trip from Eaglehawk Neck),  and all accommodation and meals for the duration of the tour.
