I wasn't going to take any vole shots today as I posted quite a few of these a couple of weeks ago - but how could I resist a face like this?

Info from countrysideinfo.co.uk

The Bank Vole is the smallest vole living in Britain at just 11.5cm in length. It has a mouse like body with a reddish brown coat, long tail and noticeable ears. They are fast moving creatures who can run, climb and swim well. They tend to remain fairly hidden in hedges, banks and thick undergrowth as they are vulnerable to attack from predators such as weasels and kestrels.They eat a wide variety of plant material including nuts, seeds, berries, roots and bulbs. Some of this food is stored in covered holes in the ground where it will provide the vole with food through the winter.
