Return to the Ock

Having been away for the past week, it is nice to go for a walk along the Ock and it is evident the nettles have been growing, making access to the water and banks almost impossible.

But the wildlife is still abundant, highlights include a water vole; a red kite, several banded damselfys and a heron:

And lots and lots of mayfly.

As I still have a few days off from work, I hope to explore Sandford Brook - one of the tributaries of Ock.


  1. Herons aren't great news for water voles, but there's nothing you can do about them. Nice that you had another water vole sighting!
