Water Vole

Dark blue dots show records since 2000
Mid blue dots show records from 1990 - 2000
Light blue dots show records from 1970 - 1990
Whitedots show records from before 1970
A species that has declined drastically across most of Britain, the water vole has also become very scarce in Pembrokeshire. A recent sighting in the St Davids area needs to be confirmed, but it seems to be extinct at all other known sites except one - and there have been no sightings there recently.

Water Voles are about the size of a rat, but with a shorter furry tail, small ears and a blunt nose. You can find more information at
