Back to Voles

Water vole, with droppings in the picture for scale

It's such a relief after heavy rains to go down to the brook and see fresh water vole poo. Flooding can easily drown voles, especially if the water level rises fast in a narrow channel. But when the monsoons finally stopped and I went down to the field, there were more latrines than I've seen all year, so even though I didn't see any actual voles I knew they were OK.

Then I checked tonight and saw two.

They are better than my co workers at using a latrine
