During last week's Heights Hotel Birdbreak
we had amazing views of several water voles at Arne's Shipstall Point. But I had left my camera in the van.
So I went back a couple of days later to photograph them. Nothing.
So I was really pleased today when this little chap swam past us on my third visit this month.
Just a bit further on down the path these lovely animals appeared.
I was very pleased with these sightings until I got back to the RSPB visitor centre.
Apparently I had most likely walked right past a great white egret that had been seen lurking in the same woods!
