This Water Vole was photographed by Gary Oldmeadow using a Nikon D200 with a 70-200 lens. Water Voles were once a common sight along the waterways of the UK, but since the 1970's their numbers have plummeted. Loss of habitat and predation by American Mink are the main causes of their decline.

In Arundel, West Sussex where this photo was taken these little mammals are thriving thanks to a reintroduction scheme started back in 2005. Over 150 Water Voles were released by WWT at the Arundel Wetland Centre and they successfully bred and dispersed around the reserve and into the surrounding countryside.
