Views of the ditch...

The stream that runs past Tescos is a delightful stroll and it offers a variety of habitats, from banks overgrown with nettles:

To ditches with little vegetation.

Although it offers what seems ideal water vole habitat, it possibly is to few and far between to sustain a population, but it's worth coming back to - especially to see what else might live their - I've seen water shrews and pigmy shrews in similar places.
The ditch running through the centre of the flood plain has dryed out in numerous places, but there are potential field signs which are worth further investigation.
