Bird Photography Tips and Tricks – Photographing Wading Birds on the Beach

Bird Photography Tips and Tricks. Today I’m enjoying photographing wading birds on the beach with my frypod (a ball head on a frying pan). There’s Turnstone, Redshank, Sanderling… but do I get my target bird, the Purple Sandpiper?? I thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed this photo-shoot; I’m never happier than when in the birds’ environment capturing natural behaviour. If you enjoyed this video, watch another I made at the same location:

Filmed with Canon M50 and 15-45mm lens.
Equipment: Canon 1DX; Canon 500mm f/4 mark i lens; home made fry-pod with pig iron ball head; Wildlife Watching Supplies lens cover

My equipment: If you purchase any of these items, that I use and recommend, through the Amazon links I receive a small commission which is massively appreciated and it helps me to keep creating new videos.
