I also think I saw a water vole. I have never seen one in the wild before but from the into the sun brief views as it swam in the water I think it may have been one.It looked like it has a flat nose and square head. I managed some poor shots of it so if anyone has any ideas please comment. Does anybody know if water voles are known to be present at Mere sands.
edit. I should have mentioned that its body was about 15cm long when swimming looking more rat sized rather than mouse sized.
