First post and First Water Vole

I've been visiting Rainham Marshes for a year now,

usually for a couple hours between jobs when I'm in

the area. On Sunday I thought I would have a quiet

stroll before starting work but it was anything but quiet

with the loud music coming from a gathering the

other side of A1306. It's funny how the traffic noise

from the A13 and the sound of the Eurostar fade in

to the background but not that music.

I was walking along the boardwalk between the

Woodland classroom and the Ken Barrett hide the part

where you turn left across the bridge, when I spotted this

little guy? munching away.

It's the first time I've seen a Water Vole, I spent a good

10 minutes watching it and got plenty of photographs.
