Wildlife Photography: How to Not Photograph Warblers – Viral Trends

Wildlife Photography: How to Not Photograph Warblers

In this video I spend a beautiful Spring morning at a local nature reserve, photographing from first light. The reeds were alive with warblers, reed buntings and linnets. Watch as I try to get close to the birds – with mixed success!

  1. Nice one Paul…great video! I imagine framing and focusing that reed bunting up with only the LCD screen was a bit of a challenge so well done. The video is transformed with those bits of music and interestingly, I used the same piece on my early Cyprus video!

  2. Male songbirds generally, and warblers in particular, are very territorial. I have found the Sibley's app for North American birds invaluable for luring songbirds out of hiding, or down from forest canopy, by playing their song within their territory. I set my phone down with the app playing the song on "repeat", back off, and wait for the bird to come down and look for the electronic interloper. Works wonders with many species.

  3. Hi I have watched several of your videos and I really love the techniques you shared. In some of your videos you mentioned that ISO~2000 is often necessary so that the aperture can be stepped down to f7.1 to get enough DoF. I am wondering if an m43 camera with a 300mm f4 lens will do a better job on the same scene? The equivalent DoF is the same as given by 600mm f8 on a FF body but ISO can be significant lower, and for amateurs that can save a lot of weight. May I have your suggestions please? Thanks!

  4. Hi Paul, Is that the version 1 of 500 mm ? Do you carry it around mounted on the tripod? I recently tried the 600mm is ii, it was really heavy. I am looking at the 500 mm is ii now.

  5. I had the same problem at Martin Mere on Friday, arrived about 5.15 and could hear the reed warblers and cettis and see the chiffchaffs through the reeds but nothing would come to the top except buntings. Got a stonechat, first I've seen in Lancashire so that made my day. Brilliant video and definitely subscribed and I'm now off to watch all your other videos.
