Water Vole sightings

Seen a water vole in Coventry, Nuneaton or Bedworth?

Let us know by completing the form below! 

Water voles have undergone one of the most catastrophic declines of any wild mammal in Britain during the 20th Century. Between 1989 and 1998 the population fell by 90% due mainly to habitat degradation and non-native American mink predation.

We are working to save the water voles still in this area and aim to extend the area they live in. 

Find out more about our Water Vole Recovery Project.

Letting us know if you spot a water vole will help us measure local numbers.
