Photographically not as good as Cromford but there is the challenge!
No sooner had I got there I was rushing back to the car for the camera as I had just spotted a Weasel, in the short few seconds it registered I noticed it was going up the canal wall using the burrows and hole entrances made by the voles.
The first view I had it popped out of a hole and gave me a look and was soon gone
I knew this was going to be more difficult than I first thought, I spent over an hour with this small killing machine and gradually I was able to get closer, wether this is field craft or luck it certainly made my day.
And to my surprise as I watched the Weasel using the underground tunnel network it never did seem to bother the voles
As for the Water Voles, well I had more sightings in three hours than I have had for a long time at Cromford.
