Water Vole survey and monitoring
34 locations were surveyed using standard methodology based on field signs. The results showed that Water Voles are widely distributed in Caithness, and the highest numbers of occupied sites are in peatland. The project raised awareness through meetings, survey work and a Water Vole Evening. Three members of the Caithness Biodiversity Group received training in identifying Water Vole field signs, which will enabled future surveys and monitoring to take place.
