I may have chopped this vole's nose off, but there's a nice clear shot of the dark brown hairy tail. Sometimes tails are all you glimpse, so it's important to know the difference between a vole's and a rat's (greyish-pink and naked). The generally rounded shape to the vole's body is the other quick-spot giveaway.

It's ages since I posted a latrine pic - so there you are. Don't say I never treat you.
Ringlet (I think)
You wait for ages and then two turn up and once. An hour and nothing but a flash by my feet of what was either the baby water vole, or possibly a bank vole, I couldn't tell which. Then, just as I was about to pack up, two large adults came round the corner practically nose to tail. One carried on up the stream, and the other hung around and ate some apple.
