My little garden Wood Mouse........................................................ on the patio

The Wood Mouse that lives in my garden was very active yesterday.

We had scattered seeds on the patio to try and get the Blackbirds close enough to take photos.

The mouse was dashing too and fro... grabbing a seed at a time and running under the fence to stash them.

We watched him for over 20 minutes... he was within a couple of feet but oblivious to us as he darted about.

He didn't stop until every seed had been gathered up and stored away.

Wood mice are supposed to be only active at night... nobody told this little fella.

Lovely pictures of such a little animal - Still looks very skinny , was probably having a ball eating all the seeds!

What a cute little bright-eyed beastie. Maybe no one told him he's supposed to be nocturnal. All the better for you and your camera, but not very good for the birds who were intended to get the seeds.

You have the most interesting backyard visitors! He's really a cute little fellow and very accomodating to visit in the daytime -- thus paying you back for all the seed by providing wonderful photo ops!

Wow, funny to see it so close and active, my experience is that they run fast away.
