The new "Mammals of Essex" atlas, co-authored by the Essex Wildlife Trust Water for Wildlife Officer Darren Tansley, has now been published and is available to buy online or in person at Essex Wildlife Trust visitor centres.
The atlas has been completely revamped and updated, once again charting the decline of once common animals such as water vole, the addition of new species such as the edible dormouse, and the return of the polecat after extinction due to persecution. From the harvest mouse to the humpback whale, exotic species and fossil mammals, with a dedicated chapter on mammal field signs, this will be one of the most comprehensive county mammal atlases available today.
