Water vole

Water voles

You probably know the water vole better as Ratty in Kenneth Graham's Wind in the Willows. But it is also a small mammal that was once common in our riverbanks and waterways. Their numbers have declined sharply over the last few decades and we would like to find out just how many there are in the National Park and where they are living. You can help by telling us where and when you see them.
