October 10th – cute visitor

I nearly ran over this little chap whilst cutting the lawn earlier. Not the smartest creature on the planet, sitting on the lawn that is occupied most of the time by Alfie and a noisy machine chomping grass.

Mrs L moved it into one of the borders and it had scurried away by the time I’d walked the woofers.

There was much debate on whether it was a small mouse or vole, but our conclusion is a vole, as it’s tail was short, and it’s nose was too short for a mole or shrew.

Here’s a great website to help identify little rodents

As a side note we have an interesting date today….  10.10.2020

Slightly mad, with a love of nature and photography.
