Nesting

Just spent an hour watching a female water vole taking nesting materials to her nest. Water voles build football-sized woven grass nests usually in underground chambers, though they have been occasionally found above ground in clumps of vegetation, too. http://www.foxglovecovert.org.uk/images/blog/IMG_3754a.jpg
