A sudden shriek from my daughter downstairs, sent me racing down to the kitchen to see what was the matter…….. there was a vole in the sink! ….. yes, weird, but it was true. She had gone to put something in the washing up bowl and it had jumped, scaring her! I can only think that one of the cats had caught it and somehow dropped it in there… poor little thing. I grabbed a plastic tub, carefully lifted up the bowl and put the tub on top. Amazingly, he seemed pretty unperturbed…. even sat and nibbled a raisin that had been in the plastic tub! I released him into the garden… a lucky escape!
