Water vole-feeding on the bank at White Lion Meadow
A poor photo, but it does show two fighting voles. They're probably two females trying to stake out territory.
The serious problem for water voles at Edward German Drive. If you're a responsible owner, please, please fit your cat with a flashing-light collar, and keep them in at night. It's safer and kinder for the cat, too.
