Water voles were reintroduced to Tarn Fen as part of a wider wetland management approach at Malham Tarn Estate. This field trip, organised by the Yorkshire and Humber Section Committee and Yorkshire Mammal Group, provides an opportunity to see how the project is progressing and to discuss some of the challenges of ecological restoration in a sensitive habitat.


Event Leader: Róisín Black, National Trust Ranger 

The reintroduction was carried out by the National Trust in 2016 and 2017 as part of an ongoing project to restore and enhance the species-rich upland fen habitat within Malham Tarn National Nature Reserve. Following our previous visit in 2018, we will look for signs of water voles and the changes they have brought to the fen habitat, and there will be plenty of opportunity to discuss what has been learnt and the need to balance conservation and educational needs at the site. Róisín will then lead us on a loop walk around the Tarn to enjoy the wildflower meadows and special landscapes of Malham, and find out more about the National Trust’s work in the Yorkshire Dales.
