As the recent snows have thawed, I've seen this little chap a few times in a quiet corner of my garden.
(Not a particularly good photo - he moves quickly!)
Clearly not a mouse or a rat, I believe this is a Bank Vole. It is coming under the fence from the open woodland that adjoins the back of my property. It is picking up seeds dropped from the bird table.
Although not endangered, Voles are not very common in this part of southern England. So I would like to encourage or protect these little creatures. I am planning to replant this corner of the garden this year - What would be a good approach?
