This water vole knows I'm watching, I think - she keeps raising her head and sniffing the air. (I'm assuming it's a female because this is probably her latrine she's standing on.)

Charming - but she's not that fussy where she eats!

Interestingly, field voles deliberately poo on their feed stations. You don't see it so much with water voles, but as you say, they're not over-fussy. Then again, rabbits go as far as re-ingesting their poo. The fact they're herbivores probably makes it more acceptable than if they were carnivores!
