Good morning folks,
Today something very different, a Bank or Long Tailed Field Vole, Myodes glareolus.
These little chaps are common in or woodland and are among the primary food sources of
owls and kestrels.
This is one of several that live around my hide. They are very difficult to photograph as they
have very acute hearing and smell, even the sound of the image stabilizer is enough to scare them.
I have been trying to get a shot of these for weeks.
Many thanks for all the C&C's on yesterdays Robin, very much appreciated.
