Mary and I went to meet Sadie at ‘Feather and Fur’ today, to discuss how best to organise our Club meeting with her on the 5th February. For those members who experienced the flying of her birds in May 2011 and took photos, I’m sure you will appreciate another chance to see the birds and photograph them at close quarters.
Sadie has some lovely birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, mice and 2 dogs at her centre, which she is hoping to expand this year, with space to demonstrate the flying of Owls, a Falcon, Red Kite and Kestrel.
During her evening with us, she will talk about each bird. They will be out of their boxes, one at a time and we will have some posts or tree branches for them to perch on, to give a more natural impression for our shots. We have discussed some backgrounds, netting, green and white draped materials. Sadie is relaxed and full of enthusiasm for her birds. The birds are very used to giving demonstrations at Children’s parties, Brownies, Photographic Clubs and anywhere they are asked to go. It should be a really different evening, so please put it in your diaries.
