Burrows 2010

Burrow at Edward German Drive.

Two burrows near each other. There'll be entrances underwater, too.

Prints along the banks at Edward German Drive.

Latrine at the railway bridge by Homebase.

Prints under the bridge at White Lion Meadow
Burrows are appearing now along the banks, to accompany the prints and latrines. For hole entrance size, think Pringles tube. Water voles also tend to nibble the grass around the openings to their burrows, and they don't leave spoil heaps outside the way rats do.
Two separate sightings tonight; managed to photograph neither.

Breeding seems a little later this year but all prints and the odd latrine look good!

I think lots of stuff's late this year.
