Nature Reserve Releases

Our news of releases continues, with our end of season release of both water voles and harvest mice.

Both have bred well this year, and so over the past week we have introduced a few more of each out on to our nature reserve.

Our harvest mice are not very often seen by the public around the boardwalk, but I do on the rare occasion spot one whilst out and about.

Our water voles on the other hand have been a huge success, and have bred for the second year running out in the wilds of the reserve. The further releases are hoped to encourage them to spread up the stream, and in to our extended area of the reserve.
