Brief description

This course is one in a series on British mammals focusing on terrestrial carnivores, including otter, fox, badger, stoat, weasel, polecat and pine marten. Species identification including skull examination, life cycles, habits and habitats will be just some of the topics covered in the workshops. Practical and field exercises will involve characteristic field- signs, with a guide to tracks and trails, feeding remains, droppings, nests and burrows. Population monitoring techniques, field surveys and dropping analysis for diet study (otter and badger). The distribution and status of these mammals, including BAP species and wildlife law will be covered briefly. If possible an evening badger watch will be arranged.
