Description

Join the Wildlife Trust as we go out surveying for harvest mouse nests at Parc Slip 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: The Coffee Shop, Parc Slip Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre

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 fields we will be surveying can be very wet and boggy.

Accessibility and Conditions: We will be surveying in the meadows 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 them.

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