1000/492: 27 June 2011: Bank Vole

Found this little guy on the footpath alongside the Mersey near Thelwall viaduct. Pretty sure it's a bank vole from the rusty brown colour on the back.

Poor thing was sat in the middle of the path quivering. I took this photo and then realised there were a couple of large dogs coming - so I trapped it between my insteps. explained what I was doing to the dog owner - who gave me a pretty quizzical look - waited 'til they'ed moved on and then popped him safely into the hedgerow.

Hope the little guy is OK.
