An awful lot of weather we've been having lately

I gather water voles aren't too bothered by snow, but they don't seem to like the rain much. In the two and a half years I've been looking for voles here, I've never once seen them come out in showery weather. It's also pointless checking for field signs after a downpour as prints, latrines and chopped grass all get washed away.

According to the forecast and we seem to have another week's worth of wet, so this blog's probably going to be quiet for a little while. Meanwhile I'll count siskins and greenfinches on my feeder, and watch my tadpoles developing.

Roll on the spring sunshine!

We've had lots of lovely spring sunshine today and yesterday in Dorset... hope you get some of it as well - I'll send some your way!

Oh, please do. And keep looking for those car-park voles!
