Harvest Mice are Britain’s smallest mammals. Once abundant, the numbers of these mammals have been reduced significantly over several decades. Rosemary attended a course provided by the Worcesterhire Mammal Group & Worcestershire Wildlife Trust (WWT) on how to identify old Harvest Mouse nests. Armed with this useful information, she describes how, together with Ian Wright, she was able to locate Harvest Mouse nests and understand the ideal habitat requirements to encourage this tiny mammal.
