Aviemore Ospreys - The best location in the UK to photograph Osprey’s in the wild!
When it comes to wildlife photography we all know there are no guarantees but the success rate of Aviemore Ospreys is second to none, with more Ospreys visiting our Lochan than anywhere else in the UK, you can be assured of getting the best chance of getting that image of a lifetime, since the hide was developed we have had a 99.2% success rate, and only 4 mornings in two years when the Ospreys have visited the Lochan but did not fish.
This hide is recommended and used by Professional Photographers from across Europe.
New Osprey Photographic hide for 2014.
We will have a new hide built for 2014,this will give photographers the opportunity to have Osprey fly straight down the camera lens at eye level, we trialled the location during the end of the Osprey season 2013 and had some stunning images, this hide is closer to the waters edge to give a lower photographic position.
Red Squirrel hide/Otter Hide. Looking for species before or after the early morning Osprey session.
For two years we guided people to a an Otter watch at a hide at the same location, with great success we were able to get Wild Otters visit to within 2ft of the hide in the late evening almost every night, we have now developed the hide for late night Otter photography with logs, tree stumps and small stone cairns to give different images, with the Otters coming right up to the hide a small lens and tripod is all that is required.
This is a late evening session under LED light, with the changes in daylight hours during the summer which affects the Otters behaviour/ times, this hide can only be booked for by contacting us .
The same hide is visited by Red Squirrels, Woodpeckers, Tree Creepers and many other small birds during the day, booking this hide can be done by contacting us in advance
