First Water Vole of the Year

Always a joyous moment. It was dropping dark and the vole was hidden in long grass so the photos aren't up to much, but it was nice to put the camera down and just watch. Earlier in the day I'd found what I presume is this vole's latrine, plus a lot of footprints on the bank nearby. Nothing's yet using the plank, which is further upstream, so I'll keep a watch on this lower stretch for now.
