Water Voles are one of Britains fastest declining mammals, with populations disappearing from up to 90% of previous habitats. This workshop will give you the opportunity to photograph them in their natural habitat as they go about their daily routines, with the opportunities to also photograph various Waterfowl species.

What have people said?

Nick G – Without doubt the best workshop I have attended for a long time! Making the arrangements was simple, Tesni replied very quickly to my emails (in spite of being in Africa for part of the time!). When we met at the location I was immediately impressed by Tesni’s considerable knowledge of the subject and its behaviour, the Water Vole appeared as if on schedule. I felt very privileged to spend the day with someone who so obviously has both a deep passion for and commitment to wildlife, and lots of knowledge of wildlife photography which she was very happy to share. Added to which Tesni is a delight to be with – I enjoyed some great photo opportunities with the Water Vole, learned a lot about optimising camera settings for wildlife photography, and generally had a very fine day. Tesni was very concerned to ensure that I had excellent opportunities for photography, but most importantly as far as I’m concerned, she puts the welfare of the wildlife first. Would I book on another workshop? Absolutely, yes! See more testimonials here…
