Events are rarely cancelled however if the weather is particularly bad I will let participating members know if the event has to be cancelled.


I will provide transport to and from the venue picking up from an agreed location (usually CADWA car park).


With regard to the landscape and wildlife visits I will have my Canon 600mm F4 and 300mm f2.8 lenses available for use, with matching Camera bodies.


Members should also bring their own photographic equipment with them .


Packed lunch would be recommended as not all the venues have cafe facilities.


Members attending will be responsible for any entry fees payable.( Chester Zoo and any wildlife reserves visited.)


Numbers are restricted to 4 members as that is the maximum number that I can transport in my car. Should numbers exceed that we will look at adding additional trips.


Places allocated on a first come  basis


I am also happy to arrange additional visits to wildlife centres, for example  Martin Mere, Leighton Moss, Mere Sands Wood, and Burton Mere Wetlands. 


These reserves have an entry fee which would be payable and would be better with smaller numbers to avoid too much disruption in the hides.


Members wishing to participate in this type of event please let me know and I would be happy to arrange a date that is convenient.


Members taking part may wish to make a donation to club funds
