    Default Phototwitch - Restricted venues

    It's been a while since we did the last phototwitch, so maybe it's time for another one.

    Except for this time we give ourselves a restriction. You can't go more than 15kms, as the crow flies, from your starting point.

    Does this sound like the sort of thing worth doing?

    Actually I'd be very keen to participate in another phototwitch, shame I'll only have a 70-200/2.8 to shoot with but I thought the last one was sensational.

    I honestly don't see the need to restrict how far people can travel to see birds. The Phototwitch is just a fun extension of our hobby and encourages us all to maybe push ourselves a little harder to try and see (and of course photograph) as many birds as we can. To restrict the distance travelled, don't know how you could police it anyway, is restricting people from finding new birds and places.

    Spending 8 hours in a 15km radius could be a bit tedious too.

    I also think we should wait till spring so that everyone has lots of different species to find.

    I think we should be having one for each season. It would be great to see how the seasons affect the numbers

    Agree with Lucky - Im hoping to be able to do it next time and i know i will be keen to travel if i can
    Perhaps have 2 different options like the Twitchathon? I agree about Spring too. I think perhaps doing one every season (whilst interesting for sure) would long term take away the sense of occasion if we were trying to build it into something bigger.
    Cheers, Dave

    I would love to have a crack at the phototwitch, I didnt get to last time and i think i would love it, although i dont have a car so i would probably only be able to reach 40-50.
    I just wish the world was twice as big and half of it was still unexplored.

    Reposts and hard C&C always welcome,
    Cheers,

    Theres no reason why you cant do your own phototwitch Mark, using whateva rules you like. I would be keen to challenge you if I'm free. As you will see in this forum I did my own twitch last year on my birthday and had a great time. However this cannot be a BOZ event as it takes away from the main event in Spring.
