Rat Among the Roots

I got these before the rain arrived in earnest today. A lone rat, scrambling around the tree roots at the edge of the pond at Falmer.

Rats at Falmer

It’s been a little while since I featured the local rodents who live in the banks of Falmer Pond. It’s a good habitat for them, with plenty of cover, nice, easy runs along the banks, and a steady supply of food courtesy of the local duck-feeders. This being Brighton, seed is more common than bread.

Anyway, here are several of the local rats…
