Warnham LNR.. with a Bank Vole (?)

Aborted morning out due to heavy rain!!  This afternoon I managed a short spell at Warnham.

Most of the usual suspects about including 2 male Reed Bunting and 1 Female.  The Marsh Tit also put in a fleeting and fast appearance. And one Great Crested Grebe visible on the water.  Didn't find it the other day so glad to see it again!

And there were two of these nipping in and out from underneath the tree stump... think they're Bank Voles and would be happy for confirmation or otherwise please?

Bad picture of the tail but for ID purposes only!

A clump of helebores in flower on the way out and..

scatterings of snowdrops.
