This year, NatureSpy is again running two day-long courses with The Mammal Society on ‘Using Camera Trapping‘.

A Bushnell camera trap lies in wait…

The first course will be at Cheshire Wildlife Trust’s Bickley Hall Farm on the 11th April, and the second at the Moors National Park Centre near Danby in the North York Moors on the 10th October.

The day is a perfect overview of what camera trapping can do, and lets participants gets hands-on with camera traps themselves.

Each delegate is able to get hands-on with different models of camera traps, with an outdoor practical session for testing set-ups, various settings and placements

Upon course completion, participants get a Mammal Society certificate.

All bookings need to go through the Mammal Society’s website and there is a concessional rate if you are a member of the Society or a student.

We look forward to seeing you there!
