The water vole is a species that has evaded me for quite a while. I have had a few sightings over the years, but no good photo opportunities. So when a friend offered to show me the a water vole platform on a small stream local to me, I didn’t hesitate. While there a small water vole came out and posed for a photo or two.
I was itching to have another go, but it was nearly a month later when I finally got back there. The sun was out and I even found a slow worm on the way there, but after a few hours I had not seen any water vole activity. Then an adult appeared.
