Thank you
Thank you very much to our product testers Dale and Kane who had great fun using the kit and giving us valuable feedback.

Before you go trampling over rare habitats and pushing the camera into nests and dens, please observe a few rules.

  • Before inspecting areas, try to get as much information as possible about the location and its animals. Learn as much as you can
  • Obtain any permission. Certain areas may be restricted access, so please get permission before use.
  • Be aware that it is illegal to disturb certain animals and most birds while nesting. Search “Wildlife and Countryside Act”. If in any doubt, consult your local wildlife trust.
  • Try to have minimal impact on habitats and environments as possible. The idea is to view, enjoy, record and leave.
  • Have fun.
