Bank vole

Longer tail than field vole (more than 1/3 of body length).

Two tone tail?

Am I right to think that bank voles have a two tone tail. Dark above light under? When compared to Field Vole that is.

Two tone tail

I've never noticed the two tone tail before and there is no mention of such in any literature I remember reading, I'll watch out for that next time I catch voles.

Two tone voles!

Thanks - I thought I heard someone say this when they were looking at the FSC field guide but I'll double check
