This Weather!

Managing to get sightings, despite the squally weather. Light rain never hurt a water vole, but heavy downpours can cause flash flooding which can fill burrows and drown young, while adults are swept away by very strong currents. I'm pleased to say, though, there've been no flash floods here this summer.

And here's hoping that the lack of flooding will long continue. I didn't realise they can be so damaging.
