A Twitchy Nose

Wednesday, December 21st 2016

Despite the wet weather today we still had quite a few visitors and today seemed to be the day for roe deer sightings, with three separate groups of people telling me they’d seen them!

One young visitor brought in her collection of bones– including a rabbit skull and part of a fox jaw. Thanks for showing us Gigi!

We’ve continued cleaning out our bird boxes ready for next year. We remove old nests as they can harbour fleas (ringed in the photo below) and other parasites, which could otherwise remain to infest birds using the box the next year.

Cleaning out bird boxes I occasionally come across old bird, wasp or bee nests and sometimes bird rings or cold eggs, but today I found something different: A little twitchy, furry nose poking out of a pile of moss – a sleepy mouse!
