More Water Voles

Tuesday, June 14th 2016

Again the weather held off any rain and although it was cloudy it was still fairly warm for our volunteers to work on their many tasks; strimming, clearing path edges, tidying up around the field centre, as well as setting a new Water Vole platform on the wetlands in an ideal position to view from the hide.

Sightings of the Water Voles were fairly numerous, and the success of these platforms is definitely the reason. Jade, our work experience student snapped these photos of the little chaps in two locations.


We had visitors in the Field Centre who were keen to learn about our Water Voles, amongst all the other things happening at the reserve. So please make sure you visit our events page on this site to find out what is going on.

Thank you to all that assisted today.

What a brilliant day we had! Thank you so much for taking the time to show us around the field centre and provide colouring pages and identification sheets for the children to spot things as we walked around. Can’t wait for pond dipping next time!
