So what are the voles like there ?
Hmmm . What your description reads to me is what we may call field mouse.the ones i'm thinking of are smaller, darker, more stubbier feet, tails. some people confuse them with mice. there are a few species but i rarely see more than the one we call a vole it does have another name added here as a meadow vole at times but i don't think i've ever heard anyone call them that when speaking to them.
there are more than one species of voles over here. i'm glad i don't have to deal with them that often.
There is a big difference between a field mouse and a vole. Voles here are garden destroyers. They got better than half of my carrots this year. They specifically cleaned out the really sweet varieties of carrots. In the past I have had them work over the beets, potatoes and tomatoes.Hmmm .
