13 wonderful volunteers analysed the contents of over 220 pitfalls today. They sorted and identified insects (at genus level) as part of the ecological monitoring work the project is doing to further understand if there are any effects of rat removal on insect abundance. They did a great job and believe, learnt lots and believe it or not - enjoyed it!
