Long term camera trapping study of British hedgerow mammals. 2015-2019


I have finally finished writing up my findings from the first five years of my camera trapping project.
The study explores in detail five species - Badger, Fox, Muntjac, Grey Squirrel and Wood Mouse with some examination of trends in Roe Deer. Brown Rat, Polecat, Weasel, Rabbit and Hedgehog.

The report looks at changes in monthly, seasonal and annual abundance changes and explores the seasonal variation in activity throughout the day and an explanation of key behaviours observed.

The report concludes with an exploration of the methods used and looks at the sort of things that need to be considered when running your own camera trapping study.
