Join awarding winning photographer Kevin Sawford on this spring bird photography course at Suffolk Wildlife Trust's stunning Trimley Marshes nature reserve.
During the course, you will learn how to photograph the array of bird life on the marshes in the spring. From waders on the scrapes to warblers in the reed beds there should be plenty of different birds all in the middle of or preparing for the breeding season.
As well as the bird life on the reserve you will have the chance to wander along the sea wall to photograph the bird life on the Orwell estuary and with the course going on till dusk we hope a lovely sunset will allow you to capture some dramatic silhouette shots at the end of the day.
