Vole in the hole

I was sat at the viewing screen the other day, watching the activities at the bird feeding station, when I noticed a movement in the undergrowth. I thought at first it was going to be a Dunnock, I'd seen several creeping around at the bottom of the bramble - turned out to be two small mammals! I watched them scurrying around, eating fallen seed, darting between cover and disappearing down their holes - apparently male and female each have their own. My first shot at identification was Wood Mouse but, following a helpful nudge from James, I'm pretty sure they were Bank Vole - a new record for the site.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New year from all at Felbeck Trust.
