We're gearing up for winter and the water voles going underground, but I'm still getting sightings at White Lion Meadow car park, sometimes two at a time. I also found this feisty wood mouse sheltering under some rubbish.
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?
