We spent a good 20 minutes watching this little guy find his dinner :)

I was surprised to see this water vole on a bank of a ditch happily going about it’s business with loads of people passing by.

Baby Water Vole

Water Voles are usually quite skittish, but this little water vole seemed not to bothered by bicycles going by, noisy kids shouting, walker feet crunching on the pebble path and of course us in plain sight watching it :)

Even though it was in plain sight I still had difficulty getting a good shot, I got a couple of good picture out of the hundred or so I took, this one is my favourite on the day.

The under growth was a really obstacle in getting a good shot as well as the small size of a baby water vole proved challenging and boy their fast once they decide to move.
