Examples of our work

For some of our favourite NatureSpy camera trap images, see our ‘Species Spied‘ pages.

Here are a few examples of the external work NatureSpy has undertaken; don’t forget our Yorkshire Pine Marten Project too!

RSPB Saltholme wildlife & discovery park

Delivered one informal training session and then another morning of setting out cameras around the reserve.

Cameras were used for creating time lapses of the local seal colony and butterflies pupating, in drainage ditches looking for water vole, outside feeding stations and in general areas of the reserve.

Footage was used to inform management and also to share with visitors to the reserve via the visitor centre screens and social media.

Five of our camera traps were hired and used as part of an otter survey in Scotland.

“Thank you very much for you excellent service – we will definitely use NatureSpy again if we need camera equipment rental in the future.”Jonathan Ashburner, Environmental Consultant, Affric Ltd

Public camera trap workshop at Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s Staveley Nature Reserve

A one-day camera trap workshop covering all things camera trap and allowing people to get hands-on with the cameras themselves.

This was open to members of the public to book and advertised via the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust website.

Also included an afternoon session in the nature reserve itself, testing the camera traps, learning how and when they trigger and a walk to spot good camera trap locations.

Appleton Wiske County Primary School

NatureSpy ran 2 sessions at Appleton Wiske Primary School; firstly setting camera traps out on school grounds to see what visits when the children go home and secondly setting camera traps out in their Forest School area.

This was followed up by talks to children ranging in age from 5-12 about the images the camera traps obtained (foxes & roe deer amongst others), other images NatureSpy had captured, British and global wildlife, wildlife adaptations (such as camouflage) and also items for the children to touch, feel and learn about (such as fossils, bones, feathers etc).

Headteacher Mrs. Sally Morris said:

“The children were fascinated by the pictures. I would highly recommend NatureSpy’s sessions as their approach and communication skills are excellent and subject knowledge ensures interactive and interesting delivery of curriculum areas linked to work in school.”
