West Midlands, United Kingdom
While moving some sacks of couch grass roots etc. I was rather astonished (and for the word smiths I mean astonished not surprised, though it did make me jump), to see a shrew or a vole jump out and run away. Not sure which, but it had the long nose of an insectivore rather than a field or house mouse with the short nose. I thought that either of these hibernated. Am I wrong?
