Come and learn how to survey for water voles

Learn how to survey and monitor water voles at Frays Farm Meadows SSSI, one of London's most important wet grassland nature reserves.

At this workshop participants will lean how to:

  • Identify and look for signs of water vole activity,
  • Gain an understanding of water vole biology and ecology
  • Understand the importance of habitat and its influence upon water voles,
  • Evaluate habitat based upon its suitability and potential to support water vole populations,
  • Understand the importance and process of mink monitoring.

After the session you will be able to spot the signs of water voles. For those who are interested we will have future opportunities to put your skills into practice as we survey our nature reserves and surrounding areas for water vole.
