Early Signs

 Field at Broughall - great habitat

 Broughall water vole droppings and paw prints

 The field off Edgeley Road, and below...

 ...two burrows

 ...and more paw prints

The weather's so vile it's been hard to get out much, but early signs in two areas look hopeful. The stream which goes across the fields at Broughall already has small latrines on the banks, and I'm just starting to see a few burrows in the colony off Edgeley Road. That last area's been flooded, though, so I suspect that will have had an impact on numbers. We'll have to see.
