Location: Western Pomerania, North-West Poland


Western Pomerania is exceptionally rich in White Tailed Eagles. These magnificent birds have been following fishermen boats for many years so they are used to them now. They hunt close to the boats and can be easily photographed at a decent distance. They are also attracted by fish thrown by the fishermen from the boats to the water.
We will go together on (max) five 3h boat-trips (15h on the water altoghether). We can expect ca. 3 to 12 (on average) eagle dives on each trip and even more sightings. We will photograph eagles in flight so it is good to bring appropriate equipment (see below) and to have some experience in action shots.

Other possible species during the trip are: gulls, cormorants, ducks, sometimes also bearded tits. Beach walk with wader photography can also be an option. Waders migrate during autumn and are easy to spot and stalk on sandy beaches.

Number of participants: min 4, max 5

Recommended equipment:
- lens at least 300 mm (DX); 400-500 mm full frame is best
- tripod not necessary for boat shooting
- rain protection for yourself and camera gear; you must be prepared for rain and splashing water
- warm winter clothes (incl. hat and gloves) esp. for autumn/winter/spring shooting; it can be really cold when it is windy

Possible inconveniences:
If you have problems with seasickness please be prepared for that. The boat is pretty stable but some rocking may occur. We will be exploring a big river mouth NOT open sea.

Important note
The trip is very weather-dependent because if there are strong winds and heavy rains it can be impossible to make a boat trip. In such a situation we can make alternative photo excursions on land in the area. Possible subjects: wildlife from the car, beach walks with wader photography (September, October), landscapes (sandy cliffs and beechwoods of Wolin National Park)
