The mammal Identification weekend provides a great chance to learn the key distinguishing features of all UK mammal species. Classroom sessions will cover the key visual clues to identification, tracks, feeding signs, nests, burrows, sounds, droppings & skeletal remains. There are plenty of opportunities to develop your practical skills during six field based sessions focusing on small mammal trapping, field signs, handling small mammals and the analysis of owl pellets. Successful completion of the course and optional assessment leads to the FSC accredited certificate in basic mammal identification.
