Mustelid trap catch 12 months to July 2015

Ark catch map 2015

Every year, early Summer sees an explosion in the number of invading mustelids, as the females leave their nest and take their litter with them. Regularly there is a concentration of catches on the periphery, but this year there has been a higher presence in the internal areas, possibly related to the very high rat numbers present.
