    Treated myself to a new camera today..

    Thought I would have a play..

    Few photo`s taken on full zoom..

    The third one we call "Stumpy", he seems to have lost his foot..:(

    Is the first one a Vole - Mole or a field mouse. ???

    Good shots. I think #1 is a Field Vole, ears too small to be a mouse. Well done for catching it in the open, they are naturally shy as they have learned they are the food of choice for many blessed with sharp teeth/claws/beaks.
