Woodland Photography Walks with Birds of Prey

We’re continuing our amazing wildlife photography walks in 2018 – our new dates are listed below.

When you take part in a photography walk, you’ll be joined by award-winning photographer Heather Burns who will give you hands-on advice for taking better pictures. And you won’t be short of subjects, as hawks, owls and falcons swoop through Sherwood Forest giving you plenty of opportunities to capture incredible images.

We are also offering new Falconry Days and weekly Hawk Walks – follow the link to find out more about these wonderful experiences.

Our wildlife photography walks have been featured in the Daily Telegraph, Manchester Evening News, Nottingham Post and more. Visit our news pages to see the reviews.

The five-hour session starts with a briefing from expert falconer Simon Stacey, who flies the birds of prey throughout the day and provides a fascinating insight to each of the birds.

As you walk through the forest, Simon brings out different birds so you can test your skills through a range of scenarios, trying to capture the fast flying falcons, to taking imaginative portraits of a giant owl.

Sessions are suitable for all standards of photographer – whether you are a beginner or expert, we’ll tailor the day to meet your needs.

The photography experience lasts around five hours and costs £95 per person, with groups limited to no more than eight. The minimum age for this activity is 12, and children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

To book: contacting the Sherwood Hideaway reception team on 01623 824 594  or email Simon at Go Active on
