Speaking of rats I got to the bank late one night all set everything sorted pottering around outside the bivvy when something is tugging on my leg.... Loose line so I start pulling an yup when that popped out my girlfriend nearly died zipped up the bivvy door an wouldn't let me in.

:(:( it was dead but still must of swallowed some old line with a hook attached.

It's not a rat it's a coypu. There used to be a large population of these at wyboston lakes until they got pest control in to wipe them out. Even though they look a lot like a rat they are fairly harmless i.e. no diseases and scared of humans but the burrows cause a lot of subsidence around the banks making it a bit treacherous. Used to see them quite often but if they saw you they were gone.
