Report a water vole sighting

Our current survey is based around annual recording following special guidelines. This is the best way to find out how our water voles are doing. If you cannot take part in the National Water Vole Monitoring Programme and would like to record a one-off sighting, please follow the link below to find your Local Environmental Record Centre.

The best people to record your sightings with are your Local Environmental Records Centre as they will then be able to add it to their records as well as feed the information in to the National Water Vole Database and Mapping Project which is run by The Wildlife Trusts. You can find out who your Local Environmental Record Centre is using the map on the Association of Local Environmental Record Centres website

Thank you.
