Description

Join the Wildlife Trust as we go out surveying for harvest mouse nests at Brynna Woods and Llanharan Marsh Nature Reserve. Finding these empty summer nests is one of the ways we can determine the presence of harvest mice, helping us to monitor our wild mice population.

Meeting place: Meet at the Western entrance to the reserve, off Brynna Road, near the Naturally Woodlands houses.

Clothing Requirements: Sturdy and waterproof footwear (wellies or waterproof boots) and weather appropriate clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty. It is advisable to bring waterproof trousers as the marsh can be very muddy and boggy when it’s wet.

Accessibility and Conditions: We will be surveying in the marsh where the ground will be uneven, rough and boggy. Please be aware that the terrain is difficult to navigate and you must therefore be quite mobile to be able to access the marsh.

Booking: Turn up on the day. This event will be weather permitting.

For more information about this event please contact Lorna by email or phone 01656 724100.
