European Badger WorksopNr. Hawick - Scottish Borders
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 workshop is conducted after dark under lights, exposure is challenging but rewarding. The photographer needs to have patience on this workshop as the badgers can come at any time, sometimes a wait is required before they appear.
Typial length of the workshop is four houes and would normally finish at midnight, April to October. Start times may vary
The Badgers will come very close on this workshop so in terms of lens recommendations, anywhere between a 200mm, 300mm, 400mm lenses are all useful, 70 – 200 mm and 100 – 400 mm, 500 mm, 150 – 600mm zoom lenses are all very good. A tripod is essential for supporting your lens in this hide.
Mirror-less micro four thirds cameras are well suited to this workshop,
The badgers have an acute sense of smell and hearing they are less than 10 meters away strict silence is necessary to get you images.
