Spotted several of these about.
Crossing mainly ditches, but one over Dry Beck.
The spring-loaded trap is surrounded by a wire cage to protect animals larger than its intended victim - whatever that may be.
I don't think that anything larger than a weasel could fit through.
A similar trap can be seen at NZ6211 : Sleddale Beck in the North York Moors.
