The project in pictures
The water voles we brought to Cookham were bred in Devon and arrive at the end of August 2021. Local volunteers, led by professionals the Derek Gow Consultancy, then handled the transfer of the voles from their transport containers into special pens. They then had several days to become acclimatised before finally being released.
These photos were taken during this time.
