Southern Scotland near Hawick

Badgers and Birds – Hide Rental

The Badgers are undoubtedly one of the UK’s most popular and best-loved wild mammals. They are primarily nocturnal and generally shy, and they are usually quite difficult to see. The badgers are very close and great shots of these iconic mammals are possible. The badgers come in after dark but under nine floodlights.

The photographer needs to have patience in this hide as the badgers can come at any time, sometimes a long wait is needed before they appear. You should be prepared to be in the hide for around six to eight hours 

Some of the birds visit the great spotted woodpecker, nuthatch, Eurasian jay, treecreeper, common redpoll, blue tit, great tit, coal tit, long-tailed tit (in winter), dunnock, goldfinch, Robin, pheasant, collared dove, occasionally Sparrowhawk, occasionally spotted flycatcher, blackbird, tree sparrow, the house sparrow. brambling. grey wagtail. The birds are very close and exceptionally good images can be expected with great backgrounds.

The birds are 12 – 16 feet from the camera on multiple setups including a reflection pool
