Water voles: 3 sightings.

Spring 2010 water vole

The mostly elusive water vole colony have recently become more visible. The above representative from the Wom Brook colony was observed from the footpath yesterday. Unlike on previous occasions, this specimen paused on the bank for several minutes, before plunging into the cold water of the Brook, submerging and disappearing from view.

For three days in succession, solitary water voles have been seen feeding on plants or swimming in the Brook.

  1. My wife and I have been out walking today and at 5.00pm walked along Wom Brook. We were amazed and delighted to spot a water vole on the bank and were priveleged to watch him for at least 20 minutes, feeding on the vegetation, before slipping in to the water and swimming off. What a delight – it made our day!

  2. Thanks for notifying us about sighting the water vole Paul-it helps the Friends of Wom Brook in building an overall ‘activity’ picture for that particular species.
