30 Days Wild – Day 15 – Vole-less

Far too much going on today, so the moment of wildness was constrained to a two minute walk from the bus stop, along the river.It does bring to mind a mildly concerning point about this year though, namely I’ve yet to see a Water Vole.

The Foss has had a population for a few years now, and we’ve had them basically at the end of our garden since we moved in in 2013. We’ve never failed to see them. They even made it through the catastrophic floods of 2015. But so far in 2017, not a sign.
