News from our Mammal Web cameras

Our Mammal Web cameras are working 24 hours a day, so that even when our human volunteers are busy doing other things the cameras keep on  monitoring our mammals.

During the past week we have had hedgehog sightings, lots of rabbit activity, roe deer families on the move and our Rainton Meadows fox cub has become brave enough to be out in the early morning giving us a fantastic colour ‘selfie’.

More cameras will be being deployed in the coming days so we are looking forward to seeing what turns up.

It’s still very early days in the project but more than 10,000 images have already been uploaded to the Mammal Web website which you can find here www.mammalweb.org. We really need lots of people to register as Spotters to help us identify the animals in all these images so please get involved and help us to find out what our mammals are up to.
