Gerald, our grass snake, is always one of our more elusive animals. A lot of times I hear people saying they haven't seen him, and/or don't believe he is in there. Many frequent visiting members have even not seen him!
We have always said he is more active around the summer, and almost on schedule the last couple of weeks we have seen him a little more often.
Keep an eye open for him next time you are here.
Our most popular babies this season have been our stoat babies, who have been on top form and playing. Here are two of them with mum, who we have now moved off display to give her some respite from the little ones antics.
Of course our wildcats, trying not to be outshined, have been great and trying to one up the stoats with their playing and games.
Two big releases this month too. Our second water vole release of the season, bringing the total up to around 100 voles released so far this year, and a joint project with some other Centres to release harvest mice. As well as our usual reserve releases we have supplied some mice for an external release.
