Our base for this Osprey Extravaganza is the outstanding Grant Arms Hotel in Grantown on Spey, if you have not visited the Grant Arms, just follow the link below to their website, it is an amazing hotel, totally geared towards Wildlife minded guests, and included in the cost of this trip is Dinner, Bed and Breakfast for 4 nights.
For the Osprey photography we will be using the outstanding hides owned by Gordon McLeod for 4 morning sessions, Sunday to Wednesday, at his small Lochan in Aviemore. This is THE prime location in the UK for photographing diving Ospreys, and this years trips have been scheduled at different times to hopefully photograph the Ospreys at the best times… In May the Ospreys are still returning from migration and are feeding up well to start breeding, with Male and female birds visiting to fish, in what Gordon says is traditionally the best light of the season, and in July the young Ospreys are leaving the nests and visiting the Lochan with their parents to fish, action can be fast and furious.
To photograph the Ospreys you will need a camera with a decent frame rate, and a lens in the order of 300-500mm plus tripod, but advice can be given on suitable equipment.
Also, for an afternoon/evening we will be visiting a private hide in Moray, where you will have the potential opportunity to photograph many species such as Pine Marten, Red Squirrel, Badger, Sparrowhawk and more. Transport to and from the hotel to the hide is included.

It is an awesome package, superb value for money, staying at THE best wildlife orientated Hotel in the UK.
