Recently we having been working with ecologists on the creation of a water vole habitat scheme on a site that was being developed for commercial use.
Prior to development the site had been surveyed and found to have a water vole colony present. The water voles were captured and were being looked after in a water vole “hotel”. They were due to be reintroduced back on the site so an established environment was required for them.
We provided a suitable habitat by installing established coir rolls along with large and very mature marginal plants creating suitable conditions for them prior to them being released back on the site.
