If you go back a couple of years or so in my blog you will find multiple posts featuring the rats down at Falmer Pond. It’s a near perfect environment for them and they generally stay close to the pond. In recent years there have been concerted efforts to reduce the population, and largely its been successful. They’ve become very tricky to spot. I don’t know whether it was the very muggy weather today, but for once they were much in evidence. Here’s a small selection of them foraging at the edge of the pond.
