A water vole

Water voles make a welcome return to Exmoor 

This September, 150 water voles were reintroduced at six carefully chosen sites on the Holnicote Estate on Exmoor. The water vole is one of the fastest declining land mammal, disappearing from 94 per cent of its habitats. The plan for one of Britain’s most adorable, yet rare creatures is that it will be given a whole new start in a healthy environment, where they can breed and flourish.
