Autumn mammal surveys
This autumn we are planning a number of mammal surveys across Cornwall.
Firstly, we are planning to extend and repeat our successful harvest mouse nest searches this season. If you would like to get involved and would like to help build our understanding of this engaging little rodent then please get in touch.
Secondly, we are fortunate to be able to access several privately owned areas this season and would like to get a variety of mammal surveys (bat, dormouse nut surveys etc.) carried out if we can raise enthusiasm. Again, please get in touch if you would like to help out.
Finally, we are carrying out otter surveys in west Cornwall towards the end of the year – if you have any experience with otter field surveys then please get in touch.
