Here's a post especially for those who like water voles and gardening.
Firstly, a great set of tips from a site called 50 Connect on how to make your garden more attractive to water voles: http://www.50connect.co.uk/home_and_family/home_and_garden/wildlife_gardening/welcome_water_voles_to_your_garden .
Next, a link about the award-winning water vole-friendly garden shown at the Chelsea Flower Show this year: http://www.rrm.co.uk/news/rattysrefuge.aspx
And lastly, a great article by Simon Barnes in the Times which really captures the joy of water vole watching: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/columnists/simon_barnes/article3904363.ece
Great to see people coming at conservation from another angle like this.
