This dataset contains the results of the yearly summer camp of the Field Study Group (Dutch Mammal Society), organized from July 24th to August 3th 2012 in Serra do Courel, Galicia, Spain. The mammals of the Serra do Courel and its surroundings were the main object of study, using various methods. Live traps were used to identify small mammals like shrews and mice. Data on bats was gathered with bat detectors and mistnets.Other mammal species were observed visually or by use of camera and video monitors. While recording mammals, attention was given to insects (butterflies, dragonflies), amphibians, reptiles and birds as well. Locations were recorded with GPS.
