Good News for the Grocontinental Voles

 Latrine in the ditch near Grocontinental. This tells us there's a breeding female there.

I know many of you have been waiting for an update on this particular colony: well, I’m pleased to tell you that after discussions, the outcome has been pretty positive. In the longer term, habitat will be improved and there is potential for further enhancement of the site, under the guidance of a team including a professional ecologist who understands about the importance of timings to works, and about best environmental practice generally.  

I'm delighted to add that I've had two sightings there recently, and we look forward to water voles thriving in this stretch of the brook.
