A call for records!

Have you seen Water vole or American Mink in North Merseyside?

For a number of years we have been supplying records to the National Water Vole Database and Mapping project. This generally takes place on a yearly basis and the call has just come in for us to supply any new records!

If you have sighting of Water vole or American Mink which you would like to share to be used as part of this vital piece of conservation work then please send them in before October this year.
