I love Cambridgeshire and I had heard that Water Voles had been showing well on one of the rivers, so time for a trip to see if I could get some pictures. Before that however, always some time for birds including Reed Bunting and Great Tit.
It was also good to see a Willow Warbler. The song gave it away together with the pale legs and longer wing projection.
It was also a good opportunity to see how the Marsh Harriers were progressing.
Along the river I had my first Dragonflies of the season in the shape of Large Red Damselfly.
Also one of five Mallard ducklings.
After a short wait, the Water Voles showed both swimming, and eating the water cress and other vegetation. Often alerted to their presence by a plop in the water, rustling in the undergrowth or munching on plants. It was a family group and great to see the youngsters, though I only managed pictures of the adults.
Such an experience to watch these beautiful creatures!
