Wood Mouse Spotting

During the UK course season, our team of instructors often find themselves gaining a unique level of intimacy with their surroundings at our various course sites. A number of our team are also keen photographers, and occasionally this blend of interests pays off in spectacular ways:

“During the Tracking Course this year, I noticed this wood mouse living inside an ancient, fallen beech. I took the opportunity to set up my camera and wait. My patience was rewarded by one of those magical moments that comes from spending time in our beautiful woodlands.”
