SN_HUNGRY_WATERVOLE_5.jpg
This hungry vole appears to be recreating an enchanting scene from The Wind in the Willows in an English pond.  The tiny water vole spotted a small island in the freshwater pond and was able to use it as a base to reach up and grab some fresh fruit.<br />
<br />
It quickly swam over and stood on its back legs to reach the blackberries before munching on them in the water.  Mark Bridger, 44, travelled just two miles from his home in West Malling, Kent, to the ponds in East Malling to capture this special moment.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
