Ditch life?

Although dried out, something has been eating the shoots in the ditch running through the centre of the floodplain

Further down the ditch, there is more water and I think I heard something move for cover. There do seems to be more signs of feeding and burrows. Definitely a place to come back to.


  1. There are droppings in that top photo. What's the scale? They do look a lot like water vole (unless they're too small, in which case they'd be field vole).

  2. The scale question is a good one and I should follow your example of using a reference.
    Unfortunately, getting out of the ditch may be problematic.
    Please see my latest post for the possible explanation.

  3. If accessibility's a problem, try the penny-on-a-string.
