So what are your tips for favourable keeper rates?


Sorry about size ... rushed to oblige

A) Know your subject, location* & flight patterns & light conditions esp. sun position

1) check weather forecast for Red Kite SUN Day - when good light confirmed
2) pop into Butcher and request Chicken Wings for the friday before
3) collect chicken wings, break each into 2 or 3 pieces and roast for 25 mins - allow to cool, turning so they do not stick ... and leave outdoors to cool and get "high"
4) charge batteries and select chips and lenses, pack photo kit bag
5) leave in plenty of time with chicken wings for "Breakkers with Red Kites"

6) arrive and set out "Brekkers" in well lit, in focus reach locations* and settle self ready with camera kit nearby - take a few test shots and adjust settings/position as necessary

7) BEG IAN for TRIAL USE of new OM-D Pro ???

8) get the gas on for sausages, bacon, eggs, mushrooms and Tea for 9am with fellow Bird in Flight mates to discuss the fun and then throw the English Springer Spaniel in the River Thames for a wash off of the mud before packing car for home
