Home Forums Champions’ chat Advice On Weighing A Juvenile Reply To: Advice On Weighing A Juvenile


Thanks for the advice all, it proved very useful.

So it turned out that one juvenile was in fact two. I contacted a rescue to make arrangements and get some further advice and then last night was able to catch both of them and weigh them. They weighed in at 220g and 140g, so they spent the night with me before going to the rescue this morning.

But the story doesn’t end there. When I checked last night’s footage from my cameras another small juvenile could be seen. So I was getting ready to try and catch that one tonight. But when I went out into the garden to clean up the mess the first two left in their temporary home, there was a small juvenile at a feeding station. At 2:30pm in the afternoon 🙁 .

So I grabbed that one to and it is now with the rescue as well. I will put the cameras out again tonight to try and ensure there isn’t a fourth out there somewhere.
