Badgers are probably the UK’s most iconic and easily recognised mammals, yet, due to their shy and nocturnal habits, most people have either never seen a live badger or at best just get a glimpse in the headlights down a country lane.

David has enjoyed a long-term passion for badgers and is actively involved in badger research and conservation. He has guided hundreds of private and group tours, and guided and advised television crews, making documentaries and news features.

Private badger watching for up to four people (over 12 years old) £185

Badger watches with David have been described as ‘magical experience’ starting with a beautiful walk through enchanting ancient woodland, carpeted with woodland flowers. The watch itself is carried out on a platform under the woodland canopy. Foxes, deer, and owls are also common sightings as you wait for the badgers to emerge. Once they make their appearance, enjoy the show as the social group play, groom and feed in front of you, sometimes coming within 3 or 4 metres.

These badger watching events are spectacular experiences. However, they are sensitive animals and although sightings can never be guaranteed, having led hundreds of watches, the success rate has been 100% on all watches since 2007.

Dates for these events are by mutual agreement in April to July. They usually start between 6 and 7pm and finish before 10pm. The location is in north Sussex.

Badger Photography

These are unique 1-to-1 sessions lasting over 6 hours for photographers using Nikon or Canon DSLR cameras.
You will learn all about manual flash control as well as setting up and triggering multiple flash units. It is also essential to cover fieldcraft when dealing with badgers in order to maximise your chances of getting the shot.

Finally, you will set-up, wait and, hopefully, run your own shoot around a sett. You will not be taking hundreds of shots on this event; the aim is to take 10, maybe less, really good ones. You will learn a huge amount about photography as well as about badgers.

Dates are by mutual arrangement and are week nights only.

Payment must be made in advance to make a booking.
