Gwyllt Hollow Woodland Mammal Box

This camera is set up in a mammal box, set up with entrances that only allow small mammals inside. The box is enclosed, but with internal lights, so the image is always in colour.

I dress the area with materials from the surrounding area and then pop a range of seeds and nuts inside to attract small mammals. 

Watch out for wood mice, bank voles and shrews as all are now visiting this set-up in the woods in my garden.

What to watch for.....

Bank Vole

Bank voles can be seen both day and night. If two come in together, watch them have, what looks like, a mini boxing match!

Common Shrew

Common shrews often pop in for the meal worms I out in here. They also love the suet products!

Pygmy Shrew

Smaller, pygmy shrews can also be seen visiting for mealworms, and suet products predominantly.
