The Last Summer?

 burrow and feeding

It's kind of the landowner to give me access to the field off Edgeley Road, but I know the clock is ticking and this field will be built on before too long. I worry so much about the future for this amazing water vole colony. It's such an exceptional site, but I've given up hoping it can be saved.

I started this blog as a record of local water vole populations, but also as a resource for those who need to spread the word about water vole protection. With this in mind, you are welcome to use any of the images on this blog, but please credit me if you do.
