Now that's an example of tolerance and sharing if ever there was one! Very cute!

Terra I put out mealworms, seeds & cheese - the latter being the preferred choice of the robins, dunnocks & blackbirds.

Karen, that Robin is usually very feisty and chases other birds off, but the mouse didn't seem to bother him, the two of them ate together for ages :)

Thanks everyone, I also put out homemade fat thingys mixed with mealworms, seeds and sultanas. I try to do my little bit for wild life - I don't kill slugs, snails, aphids etc I let the natural predators do that. With the veg I grow especially the lettuce I sacrifice some by putting them in a different part of the garden luring slugs & snails away from the main crop. I don't spray anything either - if a caterpillar can't eat it, neither can I! :))

my sister in law spotted a rat on her birdfeeder. not quite an aahhh response from her!
the mouse looks very healthy on its diet of seeds and cheese etc. :o)

Lovely to see them feeding alongside one another ... this is the perfect photo for my cat to drool over ... lol!

She often appears at the back door with a Mouse to bring in ... thank goodness we don't have a cat-flap!

Really lovely to see the little wood mouse enjoying a meal.
I saw one in the garden a good few years ago but there are so many cats around that I've not seen a sign of any mice for ages.

Thanks everyone :) I can imagine the rat didn't get aahhh response!!! Thanks for the I.D. on the mouse Linmar. One of our cats used to bring pigeons in through the open window - I remember one time he laid one on the kitchen floor at my feet, then.. all of a sudden it flew up in the air - what a fright I got! I put the cat in the hall and shut the door while tried to catch the pigeon - success after about 1/2 hour, I don't know who was more stressed, me or the pigeon! I still laugh about that yet :)))))

I used to feed a little mouse - called him Eric because I said "more crumbs, more crumbs" when I scattered them beside the hole (Eric Morcambe?!); but then he started munching on my precious seedlings in the cold frame . . . grrrr

12 Feb, 2014

 

Lol Eric, priceless Sheila :))))))

Aaaaw lovely picture Helenium.
We had the same at our old house SBG a friend was round for a coffee and she said aaaw look you've got a squirrel on your feeder, it wasn't a squirrel it was a rat after a couple more sightings we got the council out to it, he found a run under next doors shed and put poison down, no more signs until a few days later, we were selling the house at the time and just as some potential buyers were due this flippin rat came out staggering around on the lawn, obviously eaten the poison, great selling point free rat thrown in!!!!, luckily OH put it out of its misery in time, and the viewers bought the house :-)

I agree there Hywel :))

A great capture......I do admire your not spraying, or using pellets, unfortunately we do have to, if we did not we would not have a plant left in the garden....in the South the slugs snail greenfly, etc breed like crazy, and being as we have to open the garden to the public, they would not be too impressed with a garden full of eaten to bits plants...

16 Feb, 2014

 

Dd that is a shame - seems you have a pretty tough time with those critters :((

16 Feb, 2014

 

That's a magical photo, my little mouse scurries away if a bird flies onto the bird table :)
