We report a PCR survey of hantavirus infection in the extensive field vole (Microtus agrestis) populations occurring in the Kielder Forest, northern England. A Tatenale virus-like lineage was frequently detected (~ 15% prevalence) in liver tissue. Such lineages are likely to be endemic in northern England.
