Tom Moorhouse water vole talk

Really enjoyed going to the talk about water voles by Tom Moorhouse at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.  Thank you to the Oxon Mammal Group for organising it.  I learnt that Pringles tubes are good for handling water voles.  Water voles are prey for foxes, herons, owls, stouts, weasels and pike.  Sadly their numbers are decreasing because of habitat loss and the American mink.  I have been lucky to see water voles before and hope to see them again next year.
