Nice photos, John.

Mine didn't turn out too good after all

I found the whole thing very interesting and may have to get a trap of my own for Trow

Cheers, Dougie.

Dougie,

Have you sent any pictures to Clare?

The one that you showed me on the camera screen certainly looked good

Did you remember to put a memory card in?

Walking the dogs down in Trow and found a large dead brown rat that had what I think was a bite/wound to its neck, not sure if it were a dog that had done it or not as I can't think of anything else that may have killed it except man.

Could Fox, feral cat or stoat not also be suspects?

Not too sure wether a Cat could Rob, certainly a Fox would but I thought it may have done a lot more damage to it. Not seen Stoat in Trow but plenty of Weasel and I don't know if a weasel is big enough to take on a Rat of this size.

Regards

We have feral cats up at the stables which catch and kill huge rats, in fact we normally find just the skin and the head after they've finished eating them!

Although weasels are slightly smaller than stoats their diets are pretty similar (60-80% mice and voles) but they are well capable of taking a rat, in fact I read somewhere that they are braver than stoats when ratting. Typically a weasel kill would be on the ground with a sharp bite to the back of the neck.

Looks a likely suspect that might have been disturbed?

Thanks for that Rob, a few things I was unaware of there. And the rat certainly had bites to the back of the neck or if not bites something like it.

Regards

These are the best of a bad bunch.

Not as bad as forgetting to take the camera out of the boot whilst walking round Trow - especially when that little brown jobbie landed on these shores for the very first time
Those are nice pics Dougie

John borrowed a mammal trap from Andy/WWT and tried it on the mound last night. Low and behold when we arrived for the ringing this morning it had a Wood Mouse in it! So we've borrowed another 6 traps and we're going to be putting them out every weekend that we ring.

Hahahahaha come on Dougie you know the answer to that - the one who can talk a glass eye to sleep or give an Anadin a headache, still hasn't learned his lesson - i still sit with the camera in the bag preferring a good natter before i get set up. Suppose the camera is with me though - just not ready
