Chiltern Rangers: Buttler’s Hangings

After working with Chiltern Rangers before on multiple projects, I took up the opportunity to join them again when offered. Especially since I would be doing what I love: taking photos.

I was a part of just 1 of 6 sessions, where they cleared an enormous amount of scrub to return the chalk grassland to a more favorable condition for the specialist species that make this site their home, in the hope that the butterfliesinvertebrates and a host of other wildlife thrive here for many more years to come.

The main setup that I was rocking was a Canon 5D mk3 with the Sigma 50-100 f/1.8, which may not be a full frame lens, but definitely is a fantastic combination. I also had the Canon 24-105 f/4L and Canon 200 f2.8L as alternatives.

This sort of scale of work would never be possible without the force of volunteers that come out to help, including those from Butterfly Conservation Upper Thames Branch, who supported the Rangers at every single session. Thank you to all those involved.
