My Fabulous Gadget
A friend sent me this in the post today: in brief it's a coin connected to a cork, and I'll be able to carry it with me when I'm tracking to show the scale of any prints or scat, even if they're pretty inaccessible. How brilliant is that?
If you want to make your own, superglue two 2p coins together and bore a hole through both. Attach a good length of nylon thread, and tie the other end round the neck of a mushroom-shaped cork. In transit (in your pocket) the thread is wound round the cork and the coin fitted into a slot cut in the head of the cork. Genius.
I've also updated my links to show where you can buy mink raft kits. Got one on order, which I intend to use for tracking purposes.
