Friday 7th November, 7-8pm
Great North Museum: Hancock, Newcastle
This charismatic and once common species has declined dramatically in recent decades and is now a rare sight. Amy Carrick will explore Water Vole distribution around the North East, its ecology, habitats and threats. We will learn the field signs of Water Voles – what to look for when out and about and how to get involved with surveying. Amy will also feedback the results of a recent Tees Valley Water Vole Survey and what this is telling us about future populations and the changing face of our waterways.
Amy works for the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust and has co-ordinated the Tees Valley Water Vole Survey Project.
