Description

With Chris Wren

Join NHSN Conservation Lead, Chris Wren, as you get to grips with the monitoring and identification of small mammals. This event will provide a demonstration on the use of Longsworth live-capture traps and will provide an opportunity to view a range of seldom-seen mammals in the field.

Small mammal species found at Gosforth Nature Reserve include Wood Mouse, Common Shrew, Bank Vole, Water Vole and Water Shrew.

Places are limited to reduce disturbance to the animals.

NHSN members ONLY. You will be asked to provide your NHSN membership number when registering. If you would like to join NHSN, please go to http://www.nhsn.ncl.ac.uk/join-us/become-a-member/
