After the summer of the water voles, it had to be a water vole photograph we chose for photo of the month. Now back on in their main display, they are having a whale of a time, in and out of their tunnels, running over the bank and spending more time in the water than any of our previous groups out there! Best times to see them are shortly after opening, and in the afternoon around the owl display time.
So, for photo of the month, we chose this lovely picture above taken by Steve Heggie of one of our voles poking his head out of the tunnel. Steve has a lovely little set of the voles on his flickr, so click on the link in his name to see some of the other he took. The photo above will be in our coffee shop gallery next year, and of course in with the chance to win the photographic day here next year too.
More photos below, and links in all the names to see more pictures by the photographers.
