Bank Voles are amongst the rocks and bushes and are mainly 'in shadow'  — hence Lastolite reflector used to reflect sunlight into shadow area. Note Leica STA-1 tripod collar fits the Sigma 105/2.8 Macro L Mount lens. My trolley converts to a comfortable low level seat.

Nice images, but I believe what you have here are rats. The pointed nose and hairless tail are clues.

Thank you fro you comment. No mention was made of 'water voles' which are a different species. Please consider Googling 'Bank Vole'. I have photographed Swaddywell's Bank Voles for several years and posted the images on the forum.

My apologies. I stand corrected. I actually did Google 'Bank Vole' initially and what popped up was 'Water Vole.' I made the incorrect assumption that they were the same.
