Area: Western Pomerania, North-West Poland

Introduction: Eagles have been following fishermen boats in this area for many years so they are used to them now. They hunt close to boats and can be easily photographed at a decent distance. They are also attracted by fish thrown by the fishermen from the boats and they can even recognize the right boats.
We will go together on six 3h-boat-trips. We can expect ca. 3 to 12 (on average) eagle attacks on each trip and even more sightings. The area is very rich in WT Eagles.
Other possible species on the trip are gulls and cormorants. We will photograph the birds in flight so it is good to have appropriate equipment and to have some experience in action shots. The guide who is also a photographer can help you anytime you need it.

Number of participants: 3

Recommended equipment:

- warm winter clothes (incl. hat and gloves) esp. for autumn/winter/spring shooting; it can be really cold when it is windy
- lens at least 300 mm (DX); 400-500 mm full frame is best (longer can sometimes be to close) but zoom is optimal
