Winter: visit a Nottinghamshire lake where you will hope to photograph the elusive kingfisher as well as winter migrant birds, resident waterfowl and frosty landscapes. Time will be spent in a hide.

Spring: visit a Nottinghamshire nature reserve where you will photograph the wild flowers, colourful invertebrates and birdlife that are plentiful at this time of year.

There will be plenty of opportunities to capture some amazing moments with your camera. There will plenty of mistakes and missed opportunities, but all part of what will be a fun and valuable experience of real wildlife photography.
