Hi Shazski,

Do you know which sort of mice they are? Not all mice are pests, we have wood mice which are incredibly cute with very large ears. One of the benefits of this, is that we now have some young tawny owls visiting – not sure that the mice share my enthusiasm though! They don’t really eat a deal and in winter they try and outwit the hogs by hiding the food under piles of leaves.
