walk notes

This is a truly special experience.

After the early start (8.00 am) you will head above Rothbury and be guided to check some humane small mammal traps, which had been set up for the group the previous evening. Once we have identified the catches they will be released back into their natural environment.

Different traps will be checked in different locations (woodland, grassland and hill ground), which will make for a broad spectrum of small mammals.

The group will collate the information and it will be fed back to the mammal society.

Then it is back to Rothbury for brunch in a bun (included in the price), where you can find out more about the mammals that have been humanly caught over night.
