Harvest Mouse Release


What with the warmer weather beginning to come through, we have started our release for the first batch of harvest mice this year.

Having seen a few around the boardwalk that we released last year, the timing seemed about right, and so we have set up about 20 mice in to our soft release pens. These mice will be let out in to the real "wild world" over the next week or two, after they have had a little time to acclimatise to their surroundings.

Keep your eyes open around the boardwalk next time you are here, as you may be lucky enough to see a real wild harvest mouse out there!
