Ingenious, and it wouldn't matter if the odd rat got caught, but what about hedgehogs, foxes, badgers, etc. Badgers prob too big.

LATEST E-MAIL FROM BIODIVERSITY.....

Dear Recorder,

Thank you for taking the time to record and submit your sightings of invasive species over 2016. These records contribute to our knowledge of their distribution and level of invasion. It can indicate trends in introductions and ‘hotspots’ and help inform policy and action on invasive species. Verified record data is also periodically copied to the Local Authorities and other information networks to assist in tackling the threat of these species.

46 different species were recorded (26 plants and 18 animals) in 2016 and the top 5 most commonly recorded were all plants: Japanese knotweed, Giant hogweed, Himalayan balsam, Himalayan knotweed and Winter heliotrope. New sightings for five European regulated invasive species were also submitted including the aquatic plants: New Zealand pigmyweed (Crassula helmsii), African curly waterweed (Lagarosiphon major), Parrot’s feather (Myriophyllum aquaticum) and two animals: Coypu (Myocastor coypus) and Pond slider/turtle (Trachemys scripta). Rapid response action to eradicate African curly waterweed and Coypu at two recorded sites was initiated in 2016.
You can now view all verified records on Biodiversity Maps. You can also view and query your own records submitted through the online recording form or Biodiversity Data Capture App http://records.biodiversityireland.ie/data_analysis/record_map.php?mode=vmr.

All the very best for 2017!

Colette
