The New Kid!
One of Curraghmore's new animals, now settling in well with the local sheep!
Better still, for the first time, I came across two Bank Voles while walking on the road near Tower Hill cottages some days ago. These tiny omnivorous mammals are newcomers to this country, having been first seen in County Kerry in the early 1960s.
Mouse-like in appearance, the colour of the fur on their faces (somewhat like a Robin's red breast) is what caught my eye.
Read about them via Google.
