The Nature of Britain, BBC1, 9pm, Wednesday Oct 31st


Just a reminder to those who can access the West Midlands tv region that the Whitchurch water voles will be featured on BBC 1 tomorrow night. They'll be part of the local projects slot, towards the end of the programme. (If they show the volunteer group, I'll be the one wearing pink-flowered wellies.)

Sighting at 5pm this evening, near the trolley which is still there and now getting very clogged up.

Thanks for that. Being of the weaker sex I'd forgotten!

I see there's been regular sightings recently. What is the sort of time they head underground until the spring?

Any day now, I should think. The last sighting in 2006 was November 5th, then after that I didn't see anything much till March. They don't exactly hibernate, but they do make themselves pretty scarce till it warms up again. (See 'A Water Vole's Year' link on the right.)
