Suggested equipment /

For images of birds in flight we recommend bringing a telephoto lens such as a 70-200mm, 100-400mm or 150-600mm. For perched birds a short telephoto prime such as an 85mm F1.4 is ideal for more intimate portraits. If you don’t own one or both of these types of lens, don’t worry! A member the SIGMA UK team will be there on the day with a range optics for you to use if you wish.
