Days Out

The Bolton Camera Club meets weekly throughout most of the year and gives a very warm welcome to visitors and new members. We have been sharing a passion for photography since 1884 and are more than happy to share with you, whether your interest is in film or digital, audio visual or more technical aspects of photography. 

On Wednesday 22 October 2014 several club members had a very enjoyable day out at Turbary Woods Owl and Bird of Prey Sanctuary, based in Whitestake, Lostock Hall, near Preston.

Turbary Woods is a rescue and rehabilitation centre with over 90 birds of prey including eagles, falcons, owls and vultures. Al the birds are housed in large open fronted aviaries, sheltered in a woodland setting.

The centre put on a good show of various birds of prey, including eagles and many different types of owls. A flight display was put on especially for us, despite the rain.

All club members present managed to take some memorable images of the birds which will mo doubt be entered in future competitions.
