Yockings Gate and Black Park Road

Tonight's sighting (well, glimpse) at White Lion Meadow above, but I also decided to take a stroll up Yockings Gate, where I saw several water voles last year. I waited fifteen minutes but saw nothing, and couldn't spot any obvious signs either, eg feeding stations or burrows; then again, I was trying to see from quite a distance as it's private land and you can't go climbing down the banks willy nilly.
So I travelled downstream a little to Black Park Road - and couldn't believe how much feeding's going on there! (See top pic.) There's obviously a really healthy colony in that little stretch, which is terrific news.
