Twitchable EUROPEAN POLECATS in South Buckinghamshire




If anyone is interested, five 'baby' EUROPEAN POLECATS survived from a den this spring and four of those (one sadly died) have been showing incredibly well in front of one of the small hides at College Lake BBOWT Reserve near Tring. This is a rare opportunity indeed to study this primarily nocturnal animal at close range (see the awesome photographs on my Tring website - http://birdingtringreservoirs.blogspot.com/

College Lake is open from 0900 to 1700 hours except for Mondays when it is closed all day. Day Permits may be purchased from the Information Centre, from where full directions will be given to the viewing hide (capable of holding no more than four observers at any given time).
