Spent a few days in Winchester last week and enjoyed a stroll along the River Test with my grandson. We were rewarded with the sight of some water voles swimming in and out of the foliage on the far bank. My grandson got a passable photograph on his mum’s Canon Ixus I got a blur on my mobile phone! Between us we had enough to make some sketches. Here’s the best of mine.
There’s a good photograph of a water vole on the July page of the BBC’ ‘Children in Need’ calendar. Cleverly contrived with some clover floating on the water - hence the title ‘In Clover!’ I wonder how long the photographer had to wait to get that shot?
