Water Vole Mitigation and Monitoring at London Gateway Port

30 March 2016, London Gateway Port, Essex

This event was led by Charlie Dwight (The Ecology Consultancy - Senior ecologist and water vole researcher) and hosted by Marcus Pearson (DP World - Environment Manager). The event comprised of a presentation by Charlie on water vole mitigation work undertaken to date at London Gateway development site, and was followed by a site visit to see the impressive new London Gateway Port Site, and then a site visit to see the water vole research pit tag and radio collar recovery and observe the mitigation site and trapping efforts undertaken as part of the project/NE research. The event was fully booked and enjoyed by all who attended. Thanks are due to the host for the warm welcome provided and lunch/refreshments – Marcus suggested a possible follow-up event to take place at their other water vole mitigation site later this year.
