Distance



Two voles this evening again, eating very near to each other - you can see how close in picture two. I don't know whether this means they're mates or siblings; normally water voles are very territorial creatures, so I assume a close relationship between these two.

In looking at another stretch of the brook, I surprised a family of wrens, and managed to snap this just-fledged little chap. And this afternoon, at Fordhall Farm, I saw a kingfisher. Top day's nature-study!

That is a terrific picture of a wren! Fab! And I've never seen a kingfisher, but very much like to!

If you're ever in this neck of the woods, I'll take you to Fordhall Farm. It's an amazing place.
