Discovery of the bank vole (Myodes glareolus) on Ushant Island (Brittany, France)

Abstract

Ecological monitoring of small mammal occurrence on Ushant Island (Brittany, France) revealed the presence of the bank vole (Myodes glareolus) in September 2017. This was the first report of the bank vole on the island. Evaluation of previous small mammal monitoring and analysis of several batches of barn owl pellets allowed us to conclude that the arrival on the island is recent, sometime between 1995 and 2017. Further study is necessary to determine whether the current population, still incompletely distributed into suitable habitats of the island, will be self-sustaining on a long-term basis.
