About the event

Saturday 29 September - 5pm - 7.30pm

Sunday 30 September - 8am - 1pm

Capture and identification of small mammals will be demonstrated in this workshop along with a range of related aspects of work on small mammals.

The evening session will be used to set a variety of small mammal traps and the early start is to see what’s been caught overnight – the welfare of any trapped animal is of paramount importance. There will be a session on British mammals in general, methods of study (including owl pellet analysis) and on small mammal surveying.
