A stoat and squirrel sandwich - one of the training courses we run at Hardknott Forest is a "camera trapping for beginners" day, where we look at how to set up a remote wildlife camera. Ewan, one of last year's participants, has been setting up and checking a camera since he attended the training day, and has been sending us some of the results.

Leaky dam construction: time lapse footage - we recently teamed up with staff from South Cumbria Rivers Trust and Forestry England to contruct a leaky dam.

Red squirrels seen at Hardknott again - after very infrequent glimpses of red squirrels for the last few years, some more regular sightings have resulted in some camera trap footage of red squirrels.

Peatbog monitoring - this September we collected monitoring data on our restored peatbog. This included measuring the depth of the peat, which was nearly 3 metres at this point.

Zoom Presentation - an online version of the presentation and talk about the project.
