How strange that the highlight, photography wise, of my trip to the mecca of the birding world, Cley Next the Sea, was actually a mammal and not a bird. A mostly grey and windy day, the sun shone briefly whilst I photographed one of Britain’s rarities, the Water Vole. Perched on some algae, the vole was unperturbed by my snapping and only disappeared after it was startled by passers by. All the water voles I’ve manage to see have been hidden amongst reeds and grass so this was a real opportunity to photograph what must be one of the UK’s cutest animals.
