Good morning folks,
A change from birds today.
On a visit to the hide last week during the snow the little
Bank Vole made a brief appearance looking for food. I was able to
grab a few shots but most of the time he stayed beneath the snow,
occasionally burrowing out to retrieve a sunflower seed or two.
Thanks for the C&C's on yesterdays LTT.
Colin

Delightful capture of this wild Vole, Colin. Not easy in the snow and you have done it so well. Love your comment on my Seal pup GrinGrin Little people in all-in-ones brought it all back to me!
