Ratty in danger

This morning I was delighted to see a water vole in the ditch alongside which I've walked various dogs for over 20 years without a single such sighting.
My delight turned to sadness later today when I learned that this ditch will be disturbed by the construction of part of a huge flood alleviation scheme - undoubtedly necessary, but I'm off to investigate what mitigation measures will be put in place for my little Ratty friend (and his/her descendants)!
