Red Deer in Scotland: September 27th - October 4th, 2020
(8 days)

A new wildlife photo tour in Scotland, for Red Deer in the rutting season (Jura). A 8-days tour led by Patrick Dieudonne, professional photographer, in partnership with a well-known french travel agency, for online reservations and logistics. 

A wildlife photo tour in the superb island of Jura (Hebrides), where one can find more than 6000 deers in the hills and less than 200 human beings (in villages)... In october, moors and hills are at their best, and so are the deers, for their rutting season. Opportunities are endless, deers everywhere, and can be easily seen and photographed in various natural settings, near the shore, in dense forest, in the open... They are used to human presence, permitting close encounters even if they still are wild animals. Jura provides also superb mountain scenery (the Paps) and friendly accommodation and pubs (don't forget the famous Jura single malt...)

NB: Small groups of 4-7 photographers (+ guide) on this trip.

Note: this trip is open to all nationalities. I speak french and english and will be happy to welcome not just french-speaking photographers but english-speaking ones too in the same group.
