Unfortunately we are unable to allow mammals to be added on the bird news page so as quite a few entries were made in the thread we opened for Mammals in previous years we have now created a new one for 2019. 

To enter a new sighting scroll to the bottom of this thread then click on 'REPLY'.  In the Topic please enter the species and also the date then in the message give details such as numbers seen, where it/they were seen and any other interesting information.  If you are passing on someone else's sighting please give their name.  Photos can be attached to the reply once submitted by clicking on the photo icon.

Any entries posted here will be passed to the County Recorder.

Graham Fellows Field Mouseposted at 22/09/2019 12:27:15

On several occasions between Tuesday and Thursday 17th-19th Sept a Field Mouse has been seen and photographed along the main boardwalk to the main hides. On one occasion three where seen but one was a real star and a delight to observe feeding on sow-thistle.

Steve Gantlett Re: Field Mouseposted at 22/09/2019 13:57:56

Oops. Harvest Mouse you mean :-) 3 together on 17th, but seem to have disappeared again now (not seen them the last two afternoons).

Kath & Mick Claydon Harvest Miceposted at 22/09/2019 20:06:31

I'd hazard a guess they were juveniles; they develop very quickly and have probably started to disperse now.  Which means I've lost the chance of seeing them!

Not seen this before but may be regular at this time of year.

At least 30 Grey Seal bulls moving East close inshore in groups, 10, 8, 5, 4, and 3. Appeared to be looking all around and along the beach??

What’s this all about?
