Water vole survey training event this Saturday 15th May.
Come and join us on the River Windrush near Witney to hunt for the indicative field signs of this elusive mammal. Once you've got your eye in, bring your skills back to Eynsham and South Leigh and help us record their whereabouts. Water voles have suffered a catastrophic national decline in recent years, but 2020 offered a glimmer of hope when they returned to the Limb Brook at South Leigh and field signs were found along the River Thames near the Swinford Toll Bridge; have the voles recolonised the brook downstream or elsewhere in Eynsham?
Please sign up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by midday on the 14th May to reserve your place and receive joining instructions. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis for the session starting at 13:30. If there is sufficient interest, a second session will run from 15:30 and you will be notified to which group you have been allocated.
