Once upon a time there lived a friendly wood mouse named Wilbur. He dined on seeds, nuts, shoots and funghi. Wilbur found all his favourite foods in Jenny Davis' garden. Jenny liked Wilbur a lot and decided she wanted to remember him forever so photographed his adventures and sent them to us.
Whilst perusing the photos we received this week, Wilbur the wood mouse undoubtedly stole my attention for obvious reasons. Those eyes, those ears, those little mousey paws.

It's great to hear that your garden is inviting to wood mice. They're quite tiddly so it wouldn't surprise me if the snuck under your gate. Hopefully they'll continue to visit
We have 3 of these little fellas visiting our garden. We’re in the suburbs of Nottingham and over a mile from farmland but perhaps only a mile from a local park. They must’ve squeezed in under the back gate.
That sounds like a great plan! I'd love to have a read and look at some more wonderful Wilbur photos.
Thank you Emma, love your narrative, I've had so many requests for a storybook to go with my Wilbur Woodmouse images, I really need to get working on this soon. x
