With the continuing dull drab weather I have no option but to offer you another Water Vole (Arvicola amphibius) from the archives, taken last July. Almost full frame, but cropped off a little from the left hand side as he appeared a bit central.

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my Otter upload and a special THANK YOU to Keith (Kban) for his User Award for my BWC Fox upload, "Watching you watching me" Smile All very much appreciated as always.

Hi Lillian
Many thanks for your C&C - however, this isn't a BWC Water Vole but a wild one taken in the Kent area. I do agree with you that it was a lovely day at BWC last Summer - it would be great to repeat the exercise. Hope you had a good Christmas and that 2011 will be a good one for you and your family.
Sylvia

Thank you Keith and yes, of course, I do have quite a few I still have never shown and my Nuthatch archives are limited! The 4 hours spent sitting in a stream with wellies on was actually quite productive, coupled with the fact I was in great company Smile
