Water Vole

By Lillian  
A water vole getting his bit of reed
to munch away on.

please click to enlarge... is worth it!

We all spent ages... yes... ages
waiting for this character to emerge!

there was four pieces of carrot... then got slowly down to one
and still we missed seeing him get it
Val got him first.. then finally the waiting paid off
so thought a few of him for you all to see

a very shy Water vole
taken last Sunday at BWC

Thank you again for your comments and awards
on Flo the fox
