Learn the tracks, trails and signs left by animals. Practice camouflage and stalking techniques.

You'll find out how to identify the species present from a range of clues including food remains, runs, prints and droppings. You'll be able to identify regular runs and locations used by the animals present. We'll take at look at camouflage, ways of remaining unnoticed and ways of getting closer to wild animals. We'll have a go at some activities intended to fine tune your skills but which are good fun too.
