A dab of vole-y water

Exciting blog news. My brother has started a blog, recording his experiences as a shopkeeper, sub-postmaster and farmer in the Cotswold village of Bibury. Should be a contrast to the gritty urban perspective of Ragbag, eh?

Feather-footed through the plashy fen passes the questing vole.

But it's more a case of gum-booted through the plashy rack isle passes the vole quester. Anyway, if you wish to explore issues around voles then read on...

You have a brother! (Is he "Gaw 2" or are you "Gaw 2"?) I shall endeavour to have a look at his vole-orientated adventures.

I think the voleblog has a great future, in only 2 posts your brother has already conjoured up a pleasingly langourous agrestic scene

Gadjo: He's Raw, oh yes.

Worm: I think you can expect more 'Nature Notes'.

Sean: I haven't seen any in London. Perhaps our rural affairs correspondent will let us know about the Cotswolds.
