Simply mice on the feeder

David Beeson, 8th October

With the wildlife camera back in action, here are a few images and comments.

A UK dormouse arrives and the other mice have a chat with it.
Dormice are somewhat round and cuddly as they approach hibernation.
Hairy ears, fluffy tail and big eyes says ‘dormouse’.
I have yet to capture a dormouse image of them eating other than head down.
Yellow-necked mice appear to dominate around here. If I find a dead mouse it is a yellow-necked. They are far bigger than the woodmice.
Voles dominate the feeder in daylight, the mice at night.

Someone asked the other day, “Who reads the articles?” The answer is not what I expected when it was set up: few locally, but about 60% are in the UK, after that it is USA, Canada, India, China, Russia, Philippines and virtually every country except South America. It is now a worldwide package and the most read is: Plants are Clever 2.

Around 1300 articles are downloaded each month.

See Mammal Society: Dormouse_complete.pdf for more information on the species
