I've got my first booking and I think i'll just do it in low numbers, maybe 3max/day but most likely it'll be 1 photographer having the whole farm for the day for 50. Insurance is not so bad doing it this way.
There will be a toilet and a room for tea/coffee etc but nothing fancy that you get at a government run establishment.
So I'll still keep it going as my costs are very low and if you fancy a day watching Ospreys with your own eyes please get in touch. I could do a forum discount for a group of 3 booking for a day (90).
Thanks for all the feedback, it's just what I need.
At least your contact information is still on the 'other' forum. ;-) You have had a good response from many respected members on that forum, go for it and good luck!

I must make that clear, this is a trout farm not a fishery. We supply fish to fisheries.
It's called Yarrow Fishery because that's what it was called when it was started in 1979, trout farms were sometimes called fisheries.
Most of the day there is only 1 or 2 people about.
I'm going to try another photography forum and tread a bit more carefully.
Thanks again and look forward to meeting you in June.

Does that mean we on here are not respected Judith ?? All I tried to do was help
and tell him the truth, I would like to bet the ones who gave the thumbs up
on the other site will not use it.

Goodness me, Alan! That was not my intention to insinuate what you have posted!

This reminds me of why I left the forum for a long while, having my posts diissed!

Alan, have a look at the video we took using a waterproof GoPro. It's under the "FISH" section on my site. Should answer your question

Sorry but that's how it felt, and I never insinuated anything, only stating a fact, and sorry I don't
understand diissed ??

Surely there can be "respected members" on any forum? It simply implies someone whose views can be taken seriously whether you agree with them or not.

Doesn't it?

I don't understand therefore, why a reference to respected members of one forum can be taken to infer that members of another forum are not respected.

By the the same token there's really no need to dis(respect) someone just because you disagree with their opinion.

I really don't want to witness this happening again on here...

And I am also allowed to express my opinion, in fact it seems like I was
the only one on here trying to offer advice to Steve, I can also express
my opinion to how I felt, thanks Tony.I don't think there is anything
in my remarks that warrant your outburst. ??

Yep, and I thought your advice to Steve was both sensible and balanced, and drew on information that is beyond my ken. Respect to you.

Not sure why my attempt to pour oil on troubled waters should be interpreted as an "outburst" any more than I understand why Judith's post can be interpreted as disrespectful, but if that's how it comes across then I apologise, and will refrain from further comment.

Respectfully,

Tony.
