*Outdoor clothing - this should be sturdy and comfortable, comprised of several layers to allow maximum versatility. An old tracksuit, several pullovers and a waterproof jacket will suffice. JEANS ARE NOT SUITABLE, BEING COLD, RESTRICTIVE AND SLOW-DRYING. Mute natural colours will increase your chances of observing wildlife closely.

*N.B. Please note that the use of axes is not permitted on this course.

** Rucksack - Please note that it is important that you bring your kit in a rucksack rather than a suitcase or holdall.
