Water Shrew!

I appreciate it's the most rubbishy shot ever, but it does just about show the silvery shrew moving about below the surface, its tail and its back legs (you're looking at the blur in the very middle of the picture). Water shrews are dark-furred, but the bubbles trapped in their coat as they dive make them look light when viewed from above. The second photo shows location: by the railway bridge near Homebase. There are also water vole latrines and a feeding station on the left bank this evening.
