It does seem good habitat for water voles - steep banks for burrows and plenty of sources of food:
Back in January I considered if water voles were living in Sandford Brook, a stream flowing to the west of the ock meadow and is a tributary of the ock.
And there do seem to be new burrows:
And maybe signs of feeding as well:
The water vole map has been updated with a yellow pin (for possible water vole activity) and I will be returning there to see if I can get a sighting before the undergrowth gets too high:It has also been updated with another sighting on the ock (blue pin for new sighting), towards the bottom of the map:
