Tawny Frogmouth at Tasmania's Raptor Refuge

Tawny Frogmouth

Although technically not a raptor (being more closely related to a nightjar) the Tawny Frogmouth is a very charismatic resident of the Raptor Refuge down in Kettering. None more so than these terrific little guys I captured last year with a big thanks to Jules, who works at the Refuge and often accompanies my photography workshops down there.

A few of my images accompanied an article in the RACT Journeys magazine recently and it is great to be able to contribute in any way to the work being done down there. My Raptor Refuge photography workshops are another great way to support the refuge, and include 2 hours of entry to the refuge with private photography tuition. The best way to learn is to learn in the field, as we can discuss technique, composition and settings – everything you need to know basically 🙂

The refuge, being primarily focused on rehabilitation, is not generally open to the public so this photography workshop is a unique opportunity for all lovers of Tasmania’s wonderful raptors. All the details on the workshop are here on my website and to read some fun facts about the Tawny Frogmouth check this page out 🙂
