Pygmy Shrew

Dark blue dots show records since 2000
Mid blue dots show records from 1990 - 2000
Light blue dots show records from before 1990
Most records are from owl pellets or dead animals brought in by cats. Even the Skomer records are from owl pellets, none has been caught during any trapping sessions (for monitoring the Skomer Vole) so it seems probable that the short-eared owls are hunting on the Deer Park and bringing the shrews back to eat.
