Wildlife Special

Updated: Sep 28, 2021

This picture has just been sent in i’m glad to say. The European water Vole (Arivicola amphibus) is a semi aquatic rodent. Water voles have rounder noses thick brown fur, chubby faces, short ears but unlike rats have hair covering on tails paws, and ears.

Editors note: Water voles are very shy, the last time we saw one was in a stream adjoining our garden and i didnt have time to take a photo, so very glad we had one sent in .
