A Water Vole Study

Monday, July 31st 2017

We are fortunate to have Jade, who is at university studying Conservation Management, with us for the next few weeks doing a dissertation on Water Voles. 

This will involve a detailed study of their feeding preferences as well as giving us more of an idea of their territories and movements on the reserve. 

Jade is no stranger to the reserve having completed a-one-day-a-week, over a year, placement here. Her first job was to maintain the vole rafts already in situation and construct a few more rafts.

Then place them in the various areas with motion sensor cameras ready to film these shy little critters. We will keep you informed of her progress and findings. 

Elizabeth and Ruth were busy planting a couple of trees today; Elizabeth planting a lovely English Walnut…

and Ruth a Sweet Chestnut.
