Water voles thrive in Arundel after 2005 reintroduction
Water voles are thriving in a West Sussex nature reserve after being reintroduced six years ago.
The small mammals, which are often confused with rats on the riverbank, are the fastest declining native mammal in Britain.
In 2005, 171 water voles were reintroduced to the Arundel Wetland Centre by the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust.
These have now bred and successfully established themselves into their new habitat.
