Kingfisher Hide….. photograph Kingfishers perched and diving metres in front of the hide

Cuckoo…. a real unique opportunity to photograph this enigmatic bird up close

Pine Marten…. spend an evening in the Marten hide to photograph an animal that is very rarely seen, never mind photographed.

Otter … an amazing opportunity to photograph river Otters extremely close, flashes will be supplied for this

Tawny Owl…. return to the Woodland hide in the evening to photograph under lights.

Badger …. a chance to photograph Badgers by a reflection pool or at their Sett

Spring Migrants …. great opportunities to photograph Redstart and Pied Flycatcher

Stonechat and Whinchat …. high up on the Galloway Hills, to photograph these birds in their upland environment.
