The Mammals of Sunderland Point
|Rabbit||Common. A large Warren by Sambo's Grave.|
|Hare||Only prominent during the March breeding season.|
|Fox||Predictably the known earth's are destroyed by the local farmers. Much damage has undoubtedly been done to local wildlife since foxes made their recent return. Protected by some villagers.|
|Shrew sp.||Only ever seen dead!|
|Seal Sp. (Poss. Atlantic Grey)||Long Dead. Middleton foreshore. Feb. '99|
|Porpoise||One found recently dead at Potts Corner on 6/11/98 following a storm.|
|Stoat||Seen in the region of the pigeon coops.|
|Short-tailed vole||Seen running along the strandline on the beach, then ran
across the track and into the general debris lying againt the seawall.
This was roughly around the area of the "no entry" sign
in front of the third/fourth house.
