The mammal stump

We're really keen to bring more mammals to the Springwatch line up.

Inspired by Kate McCrae's mammal mounds, we've adapted a tree stump to make it a friendly area for small mammals, with our minicam ready inside it.

We're seeing mostly bank voles and the occasional wood mouse at the moment, but hoping to see some field voles and common shrews too. Common shrews are feisty little fellows and very territorial, so it will be interesting to who comes through.
