Event Overview

Vertebrates – learn about the capture and identification of small mammals with Peter Pilbeam over two days.

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.

Cost: £40 standard, £115 professional, free to BCN Wildlife Trust volunteers.
