It was great to get back into the fields and see how the voles were getting on after my week's absence. Two sightings tonight, one off Edgeley Road and one near Grocontinental. Lots of signs up Edward German Drive, too.
This blog charts the fortunes of water voles in and around the Whitchurch area, North Shropshire. Water voles are one of the UK's most threatened mammals, extinct in many counties, and so it's vital they receive as much monitoring and protection as there is going. Here in Whitchurch we're lucky enough to have them right in the middle of town - how cool is that?
