This is a very important survey, as it will be the first one done after releasing Harvest Mice at Marnham Fields in May 2023, so join us to be a citizen scientist for the afternoon 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 13:00 by the gate on the bend where Marnham Crescent joins Millet Road, Greenford, UB6 9SL. On-street parking is available on both Marnham Crescent and Millet Road; please take care not to don’t block any driveways or gate access. 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.
