These photos show two voles from White Lion Meadow, but neither of them is the one I saw last night because that one had bad mange around its eye. Which means at least three adults there already - an excellent start to the breeding season!
This blog charts the fortunes of water voles in and around the Whitchurch area, North Shropshire. Water voles are one of the UK's most threatened mammals, extinct in many counties, and so it's vital they receive as much monitoring and protection as there is going. Here in Whitchurch we're lucky enough to have them right in the middle of town - how cool is that?
