I placed a number of Longworth traps in various nooks and crannies around Maxine’s amazing garden last night.

4 Wood Mice turned up, including this juvenile.

And we caught 2 Common Shrews from opposite ends of the garden. This one shows the red tips to the teeth which are found in our 3 mainland species: Common Shrew, Pygmy Shrew and Water Shrew. You can find the Lesser White-toothed Shrew in the Scilly Isles, and the Channel Islands of Jersey & Sark, whereas the Greater White-toothed Shrew is found on Guernsey, Alderney & Herm!

This dead Weasel shows just how attractive the small mammal community in Maxine’s garden are!
