There was plenty of fresh water vole feeding, too. In the centre of the picture above (click to enlarge) is a massive pile of cut reeds. I found two new areas of activity along the canal since Saturday, which is really encouraging.

Went down to check the rafts again and found this scat, which I'm almost certain is brown rat. Nasty though it is, I thought it was worth a picture just to show the difference between rat pellets and water vole - voles' are rounded at both ends, Tic-Tac- shaped.
