Event description
Through classroom and field sessions, this course will introduce delegates to the most commonly encountered tracks and signs of UK mammals.

About this Event

During this two-day course, the trainer will highlight over one hundred of the most commonly encountered tracks and signs that can be used to identify a wide range of British mammals in the field.

Classroom sessions will cover topics such as: categories of tracks and signs, identifying mammals from prints, droppings and feeding signs, owl pellet analysis, using tracks and signs to make a biological record, and where to look for additional information.

There will also be opportunities to get out into the field to look for mammal activity and identify species.

The course starts at lunchtime on Saturday, finishing at teatime on Sunday. In addition to 3 teaching sessions each day, on the Saturday evening there will be a light-hearted quiz and the opportunity to socialise

The trainer for this course is Bob Cowley, who is certified at Level 3 by CyberTracker International.

Prices include overnight accommodation (single rooms available at a small supplement) and all meals. Non-residential places may be available on request - please email training@themammalsociety.org
