Wild Animal Tracking

Monday 12th & Tuesday 13th

Foxes, badgers and deer live in the Park but are seldom seen. Learn how to read the signs animals leave behind and make a plastercast print.  We will then take a walk off the beaten track to look for animal signs – footprints, feeding signs and poo!  Finally we’ll check our camera trap to see animal activity from the night before.
