Being involved in a never ending battle such as this conservation project, it is very easy to be disappointed when you don’t catch lots of stoats. However, the reality is that a sign of success is a drop off in catch rates, and of course an increase in the number of birds.

Listed below are our trapping results. These results will be updated as often as we can and will serve to illustrate the results of our Conservation efforts.
