Further Afield

 Yellowhammer, on Prees Heath

 Burrows along Edward German Drive

 Great crested newts, Brown Moss

 Water vole burrows and a vole "lawn" at Greenfields (Whitchurch Country Park)

 The brook as it passes through Greenfields nature reserve

 Mossfields, the back of Saddler's Walk, and one of many many feeding stations there

White Lion Meadow vole from this evening

A reminder that water voles leave piled of chopped-up vegetation, cut slantwise at both ends (see 7th pic down). Field voles also do this, but on a much daintier scale and using smaller leaves, eg juncus and blades of grass. Field voles are also more likely to poo on their feeding stations.
