Mammal Society- Harvest Mouse Survey

The Harvest Mouse is Britain’s smallest rodent, weighing just 4-8g and just 5cm in length, meaning it can be very difficult to spot in the wild. Their elusive and largely nocturnal behaviour has left us unsure of their presence, absence and distribution across the British Isles. In 2013 The Mammal Society ran a Harvest Mouse Survey, funded by the People’s Trust for Endangered Species. This year the survey is unable to run nationally but is running in the South East through the Mammal Watch South East (MaWSE) project.
