Small mammal live-trapping surveys are planned through Spring and Summer. Numbers are limited, so prior booking essential. To join us , either to assist or gain experience, please contact Jo Bissell.
2017 small mammal trapping sessions took us from farms near Matlock to parks in Derby city, with mammals that we would expect, but with surprises like a water shrew at Sinfin Moor park, a good catch of pygmy shrews (15 individuals), but best of all was at Meaden Bridge, Bakewell where we caught 7 Water Shrews in one weekend. This is more than we would normally see in a whole year.
