Tour Summary:
The focus is simply to obtain good photos of beavers in their habitat. You will have access to a private hide that will give you the best opportunity to take photos or video of beavers whilst they behave and interact naturally.
Dates: Throughout May, June, July and August
Site: River Otter Valley Catchment

Target Species:
Primarily Beavers although Otters may be possible if we find a suitable location.

BRIEF ITINERARY

You will be escorted to a hide which has been specifically located to provide the best views, lighting and distance for photography or video. More often than not, the location of the hide will be very close to a beaver lodge where most interaction between adults and any kits will take place. However, there is also the possibility of using hides that focus on trying to capture a particular type of pose such as grooming, scent marking or feeding.

Hides: The hides that we use vary from canvas photographic hides to more solid structures dependent on the site.

Below are some examples of photos you can achieve with patience…
