The brook as it passes through Yockings Gate, coming down from Blakemere.
Lots of vegetation to hide in and eat means happy voles!
Water vole droppings at the timber yard
Feeding at the timber yard
Edgeley Road vole
I haven't had a clear sighting of a vole at Yockings Gate, but when I was up there last something was hunkered down in the vegetation, chewing a stalk of reed noisily and in a way that made the stalk fall like a tree being felled. That's water vole, for sure.
Similarly, it's been a few weeks since I had a sighting at the timber yard or White Lion Meadow, but there's vole-feeding and -poo about, so I know they're there!
