Come along and take part by being a citizen scientist for the afternoon in our second-season survey to find out if our reintroduced harvest mice are holding their own!
We’ll teach you how to look for their distinctive nests in suitable habitats which is one of the only reliable ways we can monitor their progress over time.
Suitable for all the family, and we love to see kids get involved but it does involve methodical, patient surveying and walking through sensitive meadow habitats as a team without damaging the site. Hence it might be more suitable for children of 8 and over, but we will rely on parental discretion.
Meet at the underpass access to Paradise Fields next to the car park adjacent to Mcdonald’s in Westway Cross Retail Park. We will then walk through to the meadow for our survey.
Please wear weather-suitable clothing and comfortable footwear suitable for rough and muddy terrain.
