Tal Chohan - 'Wildlife from Home to Tadoba’

There is a slight change this evening to the talk Tal originally planned and will offer an insight into his more recent and experimental work. However the images and talk he will give still covers the area around his home in Sandwell to the more exotic environment of a Tiger Reserve in the Chandrapur district of Maharashtra state in central India - something of a contrast to say the least. Should be a good night.

 

Tai will be covering wildlife in his local reserve, before venturing further afield to Wales & Lincolnshire. The second part of the evening will then focus on Tai’s trips to India photographing tigers.

Days Out Event (Members Only) - Slimbridge Wildlife & Wetland Centre

Meet at the Main Entrance at 9.15 am.

This visit should be good for photographing many breeding birds and their young. For an extra £5.00 per person there is a safari trailer and tractor which can take you onto the reserve near the Severn estuary, to get a closer view of many breeding birds but also there is a chance you might see other wildlife such as wild otters, brown hares and grass snakes. Unfortunately it is not possible to reserve the trailer for private use, but if we arrive at the reserve fairly early we may still  be able to take the safari along with the general public, if you so wish. 

If you are interested in this event email Pat Catlin at  daysout@droitwichcamera.co.uk especially if you can provide a lift for someone or would like to car.share..
