Water Vole Youngsters born on the Display Island
After introducing a new pair of water voles to our island display at the beginning of the year, they have settled down extremely well and produced a litter. Growing up on display and in front of the public they have no fear, and have been a fantastic exhibit over the past few days posing well for photographers.
The best time to see our water voles are in the morning and at the end of the day, but while they are growing up the youngsters will often be seen out and about during the middle of the day too.
