I said a couple of days ago that I was trying to film a “visitor” we were getting to our small lobby at the back of the house. I wasn’t sure what had chewed into the birdseed bag. Was it a rat? a very small badger? a plastic-eating blue-tit? no, it turns out to have been a wood mouse…

I caught the little critter red-handed using my infra-red CCTV camera last night. Surprisingly he only turned up at about 3am, and was only around for 5 mins (I thought he would be back and forth all night).
This is just a little “fun” clip of him racing backwards and forwards picking up sunflower hearts while the rest of us were fast-asleep. I will be trying to film him again tonight with “mouse cam” but much, much closer!
We had a wood mouse in the house when we first moved in and were having building work done. He was very cute. Enormous eyes and an incredibly long tail. We eventually managed to persuade him that living outside would be a better idea.
