Mouse in the house

Last night we put the trail camera in the cupboard under the kitchen sink and this little Wood mouse appeared.

It is probably a Wood mouse as it has a white underside and brown on top, where as House mice are generally brown or grey all over. Wood mice don’t smell unlike House mice.

The Wood mice come into our house around winter time or after the crops have been cut in the fields next door. They also go in to our garage.

Our house is quite old so there are loads of cracks and holes they can get in through. Once we had a Wood mouse make a nest in our bureau, where I write my blog, out of spare paper and hay from one of our rabbits.
