"What will be your summer-wildlife highlight? A dawn chorus combining birds of woodland and wetland? Lying in a meadow of orchids and ox-eye daisies? A boat trip to an offshore island where puffins peer curiously at you? Or a dune tiger beetle, scurrying along the sand beneath the bluest of summer skies? This book celebrates the special, the rare and the spectacular." A Summer of British Wildlife by James Lowen #100dayswild Get 10% off here www.bradtguides.com

August 15: "Save the best for the end. If their breeding season has been successful, Rainham’s water voles should be plentiful. Where channels cut through the reeds, approach quietly. Scan the edges and listen for nibbling."

Water Vole - Munch munch munch, nom nom nom.

This is a wild water vole, but we managed to get some super close-up views of it last weekend. It was a very early start to get there for sunrise, but I think having only 4 hours of sleep helped me, as I was keen to lay down on the grass and stay still :-) During the day, we watched a couple of different water voles, and it's amazing just how much they eat.
