Mammals of Dry Drayton

 

This page lists the mammals identified in Dry Drayton. The list was compiled by Dr Val Perrin and was first published in "Gallows Piece to Bee Garden" the Millennium History of Dry Drayton, by Dry Drayton 2000. The list has been updated with species observed between 2000 and 2009. We are most grateful to Dr Val Parrin for allowing us to reproduce this material and to the many keen natural historians in Dry Drayton who made their records available. Please let us know if you find additional species in the Parish. It is to be hoped that others will make additions to this list in order to make the parish natural history records as complete as possible.
