Venue: Liberty’s Centre, Crow Lane, Ringwood, Hampshire. BH24 3EA (Zoo Licence Number: 1009/2)

Your chance to photograph some of the beautiful birds of prey that reside at Liberty’s Centre near Ringwood, in the New Forest, under outdoor natural light conditions without cages or wire in the way. On these days we showcase some of the resident birds at Liberty’s Centre both flying and static out in our flying field. These days are suitable for photographers of all levels and an experienced photographer is always on hand to help you out if you would like any assistance or advice.

The day starts at 9.30 AM with a quick safety talk after which the birds will be displayed for you with a mixture of static and flying birds through out the morning. The Photo Day ends at 11.30 AM when we have to clear the field for the public flying demonstration at Midday which lasts around half an hour or so. You are welcome to stay for the public flying demonstration plus any others that might be held during the day (usually around 2.30 PM) making this a great day out with plenty of opportunity for those in-flight pictures.

There is ample parking at the Centre as well as a Café and Toilet facilities for visitors to Liberty’s.

Dark Phase Barn Owl – “Fudge”

Recommended Camera Equipment:  For these days we recommend a good DSLR or Mirrorless Camera with a reasonable frame rate in continuous shooting mode and a good auto focus. For lenses something along the lines of 70 – 200mm, 70 – 300mm and 100 – 400 or higher will allow you the most options.

We recommend plenty of memory and batteries as this day will see most people using continuous shooting modes and continuous (servo) auto focus for much of the day.
