Six months ago, I decided (and more importantly!) got permission to have a week away on my own to shoot a weeks worth of wildlife...along with some landscapes.
The original plan was to head up to Skye where I've seen seals, Minke whales and Sea Eagles. As the year has gone on, this date has been pushed back and back for many reasons, to the point where I'm now looking at late November.
I've been to Skye out of season a few times now, but November for some reason strikes me as a month that could throw up all sorts of weather that could hamper the 600 mile drive I would need to do....on my own....
So, keeping in mind I live in Hertforshire, where would you UK lot recommend to go for a week? My main aim was to shoot seals so the whales and eagles can wait until next year (plus I'm off to Iceland Boxing Day so I'm hoping for whales there). I've read that Norfolk is good, but the east coast is not somewhere I know very well. In the next couple of weeks I shall be adding a 500 F4, so reach shouldn't be too much of a problem.
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.............or some encouragement to stick to the Skye idea!
