About us

 

The Staffordshire Mammal  Group  is a friendly  group  of enthusiasts who  like to share  their knowledge and experience with all who  have an interest  in British Mammals.

 The groups aim is to promote the study  of Mammals in Staffordshire and the UK, and to  record species distribution for Staffordshire,

 We hold monthly  meeting on the third Sunday  of each month and the first  Wednesday  evening of the summer months, see the events programme for more details.

Events are  spread across the county  and but  we also  visit  species hot  spots elsewhere  to  see Mountain Hares and  Grey  Seals.

 One month we may  carry  out  small mammal  trapping, the next  looking for harvest  mice nests, the summer months include bat  surveys as well as general surveys looking at  field signs of mammal  activity. You  can look at  our  blog  for past  meetings or join in the facebook group  for informative discussion of local  and national  topics.

We invite  you  all to  attend the meetings, no  previous experience required. Although we do  not  have a membership  fee we encourage you  to  support  the national  Mammal Society.

 

 We hope to  see you   at  one of our  meetings soon

Hike


Hazel Dormouse (Muscardinus avellanarius): We have a reintroduced population of dormice, however we also have a wild population on the other side of the country.  

The best chance to see a dormouse is to come out with the group on our box checks, although we have not seen one in recent years.
