The Forest is home to the common and pygmy shrew, the water shrew, the dormouse, the wood mouse and the yellow necked mouse.  There are foxes, rabbits, stoats, weasels, squirrels and badgers. Staff are undertaking, or supervising, surveys of small mammals (including bats).  The most conspicuous mammal is, of course, the grey squirrel and the damage it causes to trees (especially sweet chestnut and birch) is very obvious.
