Coming soon: the BBC on Whitchurch Water Vole Group.

So pleased to see this baby vole during an interview for Radio 4's Saving Species. The lovely Sarah Pitt had driven all the way to Shropshire from the Natural History Unit in Bristol, and we'd already sat for an hour in the field and seen nothing. Then this wee chap swam up and hung around for a minute or two, turning in the water and diving and kicking up mud. I reckon he's about three weeks old.
