Fermoy locality photo shoot

As you know the Fermoy Youth Centre have requested photos of Fermoy and locality which they intend hanging up in the Youth Centre and with this in mind we organised an outing to Fermoy which was originally scheduled for 18th March. Please note that the date has been rescheduled to 17th March as many of our photographers will already be in town for the St Patricks day parade. Any members who wish to take photos in places outside Fermoy might just let me know so we know what areas people are covering.

 

Kilmallock Falconry http://www.animalmagic.ie and Animal Magic Wildlife Displays on Facebook

please take a look at the above website as some members from the Nature group have expressed an interest in going to this for an outing and we will ask members to let us know on Tuesday night to indicate if they would like to visit. If you cannot attend meeting then please email reply.

Please note the admission price quoted is €30 per person and if there are 20 people then price will be €20 per person.

At present they have an open day for camera club on 25th March and if we have enough interest we will suss out if any alternative date available as distinction sitting on the day before.

 

Nerja booking Deadline - Tues 13th March

Reminder if you intend joining the group going to Nerja 11-14th Oct then please get deposit of €240 and copy of passport to John Meade by next Tuesday 13/3.

 

Harpers Island wetland centre Glounthaunehttp://www.birdwatchcork.com/harper%27s.htm

For anyone interested in birds this is a new wetlands centre with a Hide and is open to the public every Sat & Sun.

However if members are interested we can arrange to visit during the week but would recommend no more than about 5/6 people per visit at a time.

It would be beneficial to have 300mm or longer zoom lens for photographing the birds here.

Again we will suss out how much interest there is before confirming.
