Checking into the Prees Branch Canal again

Apologies for the worse-than-usual standard of photo; I had to take this with my phone because my camera batteries had run out. Anyway, this is otter spraint left under the bridge, the second spraint I've seen on this stretch in a couple of months. Good evidence of water vole feeding on both sides of the bridge, and the rafts were clear too. Thanks to Joan for her help in monitoring this area.
Two sightings at White Lion Meadow today (in between showers!).

Good news. The pics are nice and clear.

Thanks. If I'd taken the photo with my proper camera, you could have enlarged it and seen all the little fish scales and bones in the spraint, but there are other close-ups on my blog if you click on 'otter'.

Oh, yes! The White Lion Meadow water vole looks lovely.
