New sights of European mink were recorded in the Rochefort marshes and upstream of Angoulême using indirect detection equipment.

A successful device with bait in natural lands owned by the LPO within Rochefort marshes

For several months, an innovative device of indirect detection has been tested on some sites of the LIFE area. A bait consisting of fish oil is installed near a photo trap. By analysing the photos, the LIFE VISON teams were able to discover several shots of European mink!

Footprints and a photo of European mink, this time in Saint-Yrieix-sur-Charente

The fingerprint tunnels deployed in January on the Charente upstream of Angoulême revealed the occurrence of European mink 15 km downstream from the data recorded in Varsin December. Two tunnels separated by 3 km were used, including one on two occasions, on which the installation of a photo trap made it possible to take a visitor snapshot.

A photo trap, installed between Vars and La Chapelle, filmed a European mink in its natural habitat..

A nice Christmas gift for LIFE VISON teams!

On this stretch of Charente River, some twenty kilometres long, the GREGE teams recorded a dozen sights in several fingerprint tunnels between September and the end of December. Despite the floods that took away several materials, a photo trap placed in front of a busy tunnel made it possible to film an individual a few days before Christmas.
