Small Mammals in Gosforth Park Nature Reserve
Saturday 8th October, 10.30am (1½ hours). To celebrate World Animal Day we will be examining bait tubes and Longworth live traps for signs and presence of small mammals (mice, voles and shrews), and participants will be able to re-bait and reset the traps after examination if they wish. Accompanied children welcome. Please be prepared for mud and slippery, wet conditions underfoot. This event will mark the beginning of our contribution towards an ongoing bi-annual national survey for small mammals, which is being co-ordinated by the Mammal Society UK. Volunteers welcome, training provided. This event is free but booking is required to manage numbers. Please visit www.nhsn.ncl.ac.uk for more information.
