Updated ‘PROVISIONAL CHECKLIST AND ACCOUNT OF THE MAMMALS OF THE LONDON BOROUGH OF BEXLEY’ (Edition 4) published

The guide to the mammals of Bexley, compiled by Chris Rose with contributions from a number of local wildlife observers,  has been significantly updated to include a number of new Hedgehog records, additional information about Harvest Mice in the Borough, details of the credible sightings of Reeves’ Muntjac Deer in the Sidcup area, links to further reference material and more mammal photographs taken in the area. 

There are 30 species of ‘wild’ mammal (including humans!) considered resident in the Borough. Details of others that may be present or that are known to have become extinct during the 20th century, are also provided.  

Comprising an illustrated cover and 26 pages of text, it can be read online below, or downloaded as a pdf file.
