Water Shrew Presence/Absence Surveying Project
This survey started in 2018 and its aim is to target the areas of the county which currently hold no records for Water Shrew. These areas will incorporate the River Frome and it’s tributaries to the North-East and the River Dore and it’s tributaries to the South-West. The survey will follow the same protocol as the National Water Shrew Survey. The project is currently on hold pending a review of resouces.
