Lindsay spent a very enjoyable couple of days last week providing training with Jeff Picksley of Artemis Ecological Consulting to Forest Holidays rangers.

The animals didn't disappoint during the practical sessions with adders, a great example of a badger scratching post / tree and fantastic foraging noctules. The Rangers do a fantastic job in providing wildlife experiences for guests with resorts in some beautiful parts of the country. ... See MoreSee Less
