    How did you get a walking permit to visit Wytham Woods Nature Reserve? Their website says they will only mail them to a UK address?

    Hi Vladimir, I know the UK is rather depleted when it comes to mammals but I wouldn’t say that seeing an Exmoor Pony – a domestic ‘horse’ (albeit an ancient breed) would be a highlight of a mammal watching visit to Britain! But each to their own I guess. Water Voles and Water Shrews aside (presumably the Water Shrews were in the water or at the waters edge) how did you identify the mice/voles/shrews you saw to species using an image intensifier? I ask because a friend who uses one says he finds it near on impossible to id rodents/shrews. Is it a matter of more practice/experience? To be fair on him it isn’t always that easy to id rodents/shrews in a spotlight or car headlights.

    Hi Vladimir
    Can you guide me how you got your 10 Water Shrews? I’ve found it almost impossible to get satisfactory views of this species. ATB

    I wasn’t looking for them, just walking around with a thermal imager. One pair actually chased each other, squeaking, and ran within a foot from my feet.
