A good turn-out of more than twenty Friends and guests enjoyed Laurie Jackson’s extremely informative talk last Saturday morning. Laurie introduced us to all the key small mammal species to be found in our county with beautiful illustrations of each. Luckily, however, she didn’t test our identification skills too closely at the end of her fascinating talk!
Laurie works for Buglife and she also carries out regular small mammal surveys for the Sussex Mammal Group. Her particular interests are harvest mice and hazel dormice and she was keen to encourage anyone with an interest in helping with both these and other small mammal surveys to contact her via the Sussex Mammal Group website:
There are no more Friends’ events this year but we will start our 2017 season with a talk by Andy Dinsdale on ‘Marine Pollution’ on Saturday 18th February. We look forward to welcoming you to both this and other Friends’ events next year.
