I've seen my first baby water vole of the year, but it was too nervous for me to get a photo. However, the adults are showing well - there are two individuals here, the lower one having an injured eye which I'm pleased to say is healing well.
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?
