Workshop Synopsis
 
As Britain’s smallest British rodent, harvest mice are the only old world mammal to have truly prehensile tails, which they use to help them climb. They are extremely active and agile climbers, feeding in the stalk zone of long grasses and reeds. I was introduced to this little mouse nearly 40 years ago and studied them as part of a university degree and I have been fond of them ever since.

Harvest mice are truly fascinating and attractive subjects for wildlife photography and a project I first undertook 35 years ago and regularly ever since. To ensure
the mice are kept healthy and fit, I have established a breeding colony and work with two other projects in the UK exchanging breeding stock for release projects to increase the numbers of this once common mammal in the wild.

This is a chance to capture some really stunning images and to have some fun as well as learn more about your camera and wildlife photography. The workshops are ½ day and I limit the numbers to 2 or, if a group of friends, 3. As a professional zoologist and wildlife photographer, this enables me to provide as near 1-1 tuition as possible. I offer the 1/2 day workshops at my house in the north of Northamptonshire within easy access to all the main routes. Morning sessions run from 10am to 12:30pm and afternoon sessions run from 2:00pm to 4:30pm.

Just a word of warning – photographing harvest mice is addictive !
 
Cost £68 for a half day (2½ hour) workshop limited to max. 2 people (occasionally 3).
