Water Rat

Can't see the tail but the ears look more like a rat's. (Apparently there are voles on the River Lagan - not native though - but this one is likely to be a brown rat.)

Voles on Lagan?

Where did these vole reports come from? There is one vole in Ireland, introduced, but not in the north yet and by all accounts no water voles.

a Lagan Valley Regional Park volunteer co-ordinator, recently. (Maybe I shouldn't believe everything I hear!)
