Field Mouse

A couple of shots from last year. I was walking along at Strumpshaw Fen when I noticed something disturbing the leaf litter beside the path. Closer inspection revealed four tiny young Field Mice, which I imagine had only just left the nest. I stood still and they continued to feed, ignoring my presence. Eventually they scampered across the path and dispersed in different directions.

E-M1 and 75-300 II.

Re: Field Mouse

Apodemus sylvaticus sylvaticus the Long-tailed Field Mouse or Wood Mouse.

Nice captures.

We had a small infestation of these is our kitchen. We trapped and released them outside. They love white chocolate, which was their downfall.

Re: Field Mouse

Thanks for the ID Harold. I realised that 'Field Mouse' is rather a generic description but I wasn't 100% sure what they were. Some people who appeared later proclaimed confidently that they were Dormice!

They also seem very fond of rubber. Their favourite food in our kitchen is the elbow joint on the dishwasher outlet hose

Ron - delightful images.
