A family of these regularly visited the garden of the cottage we were staying at to eat seeds dropped from the bird feeder. The cottage was in rural, farm/grassland surroundings and next to a stream.

Thanks, I have added the scientific name - will remember that for future spots :o) There were loads of drystone walls in the vicinity so I guess the voles may well have been living in one of those.
