A morning activity aimed at anyone with an interest in wildlife, who wants to learn more about water voles.
The session is particularly suitable for those who want to find out how to take part in volunteer water voles surveys in their local area.
There will be a short Indoor presentation, with an introduction to the identification and basic ecology and habitat requirements of water voles, together with information about the National Water Vole monitoring programme (organised by PTES), and how you can get involved.

We will then have the opportunity to search for signs of water voles at Denmark Farm. We will be looking for feeding remains, burrows and droppings.
Ideal for beginners – no experience necessary. All equipment provided – bring outdoor gear and wellies.
Hot drinks and biscuits provided.
Suitable for all ages (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult).
Max 8 people (limited numbers to minimise disturbance of habitat).
There is no charge to take part but donations towards the conservation work at Denmark Farm will be gratefully received.
This session will last for two to three hours. It will be followed by a short lunch break (bring a packed lunch) and then conservation tasks during the afternoon.
Please do join us for the afternoon as well if you have the time.
