Join us for an overnight stay at Kite Rise, High Field to learn how to use longworth mammal traps to survey mice, voles and shrews. The course will be led by The Natural History Society of Northumbria Mammal Group and Durham Wildlife Trust.
The evening session on the 23rd will provide an introduction to the different small mammals found in the North East of England and practical workshop on how to prepare and set the live mammal traps. The trap checking workshop will be held 8.00am on the Saturday morning and breakfast will be provided on return to Kite Rise. There is no charge for this course as it is part of the Geology & Wildlife Surveyors Project delivered through the Land of Oak & Iron, funded by Heritage Lottery Fund.
