Marvellous Mammals, Auchincruive
Ayr Rivers Trust, 1 Gibbs Yard, Auchincruive Estate, Ayr, KA6 5HW
The Where’s Wildlife in Ayrshire? Project is excited to be working in partnership with The Wildlife Information Centre (TWIC) to run this event.
During our workshop we will have both classroom and field sessions to look at some of the key visual clues to identification of common small mammals, such as; tracks, feeding signs, nests, burrows, sounds and droppings. We will also undertake small mammal trapping which will provide the opportunity to ‘meet’ these animals and discuss their key features. This event will provide a starting point for anyone interested in starting to record small mammals and to start to develop survey skills in this area.
No previous experience is necessary – just a keen interest in nature and an enjoyment of seeing and identifying the wildlife around you.
