We have bank voles in our garden. I never knew what a vole was until we moved here.
:-) They are so cute.
This weekend the voles were really active. I put some left-over boiled potatoes out for the birds on Saturday, but that evening Mrs Vole came and rolled them away home. I can imagine the whole vole family had a wonderful dinner as the potatoes were bigger than they are. They live under the wooden decking by the back shed. Even during the daytime we see these little heads popping up between the wooden slats, to see if it is safe. Good idea to be careful as we have a fox, barn owls and tawny owls in our area.
Last night I was making tea when I realised there was a vole perched on the bird feeder! It's one of those tubular hanging things that hold seed or peanuts. A vole was there sitting on one of the perches trying to get a peanut out. He had a tiny paw through the mesh, but couldn't pull the peanut through. It was too dark to see if he managed to get the peanut out or not. I'm betting he did.
