    The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales currently has a student from Cardiff University, Rose Revera, on placement at Parc Slip Nature reserve in South Wales. As part of the placement Rose is conducting a species monitoring survey of the reserve using corrugated bitumen roofing sheets as artificial refugia for small mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Between August 2010 and March 2011, there have been 765 sightings of small mammals under the sheets, comprising seven of our small mammal species. There have also been 382 reptile sightings, including adders and grass snakes, and 671 amphibian sightings, including 243 great crested newt sightings. When a great crested newt is found under the sheets, it is also measured and a photo of its belly patterns is taken- each individual newt has a unique belly pattern and so can be identified if it is found again. The survey is continuing until June 2011. If any further information is required, please feel free to contact:
