Field Vole, Water Vole, Kingfisher


Thrilled to see this kingfisher on a pond behind Sainsbury's!

 Awful photo taken on my phone, but nice to have the sighting at White Lion Meadow car park.


 Field vole feeding station (too small for water vole)


Dead field vole, probably killed by a cat.

I haven't been able to hang around the main town car park by Tesco much this year, but the fine latrine on the stone under the bridge there tells me the voles have done OK. Meanwhile the Edgeley Road colony remains busy!

Tiny Signs





Fewer and fewer sightings, but the little pile of droppings tells me the voles are still there.
