I know water-voles don't quite have the same cuteness factor as red squirrels & robins, the wow of the big cats, or the colour of red kites but my day photographing these delightful creatures in a private stream in Kent has to be shared with you.
This youngster was quite happy to be photographed and at one time I had two swimming round my feet.
It might have been dull and a bit wet at first but it was just as much fun as going on Safari.....honest.
If anyone wants to give it a go Terry Whittaker's workshops will be going on for a bit longer yet.
It wasn't a meet but all five of us who met there were EPZ members, all be it somewhat lapsed!!!
