Otters Prompt Vole Resurgence

Unashamedly lifted that wonderful headline from a BBC page. Otters, it seems, are killing the American mink. These have been feasting on our natives voles. Voles have always been close to my heart since that line in Evelyn Waugh's Scoop - "Feather-footed through the plashy fen hurries the questing vole". So go, otters, I say. But, to be honest, I just did this for the headline.

  1. Just struck me that The Vole Resurgence would be a good Robert Ludlum title.
