There is some water vole presence at the timber yard, but I've seen nothing by the bridge for several weeks, so I'm waiting patiently with my fingers crossed. In the meantime, here are some lovely birds from Venus Pool.

I haven't seen a water vole at White Lion Meadow for twenty days now and am increasingly concerned they've been driven away or killed by rats. I am keeping a close eye on the situation, but there's not a lot else I can do.
