Day 30; #30DaysWild - Mammal Trapping Training

The final day of #30DaysWild was spent in Much Wenlock doing some training with the rest of the group. We did some small mammal trapping training! This was done so that we could get an idea on the reasons why we trap small mammals (to see what's in an area to update local biological records) and also to show us how to do it, so we can do this for our jobs if needed.

Every June the Wildlife Trusts run a campaign called 30 Days Wild. This year I shall be taking part! It is my first time doing the challenge, and I’ve been planning lots of things to do over the month. The idea is to encourage wildness, exploration and an involvement with the natural world. The daily things can be anything, from walking barefoot, to doing outdoor yoga, or growing veg to hunting out woodlice under a stone. Little things that help you reconnect with nature!
