Water Voles in the Gara

After 200 water voles were released into the Gara last September near Hutcherleigh and Millcombe, the Habitat Group were pleased to see the results of a survey showing that they had settled in well with plenty of signs of vole activity. Keen eyed locals have spotted water voles as far north as Ritson and near Forder which is a kilometre or so south of the release sites. It is possible that they have already reached as far as Slapton Ley. However these adventurous voles need to find breeding partners on their travels to make the reintroduction sustainable in the long term and so we will be releasing the next 200 further south along the Gara in early June.
Anyone who would like to know more or get involved in the releases is very welcome to get in touch. Please email Sue (The Habitat Group) at or visit
