Another Yellow-necked Mouse has been found in the woodland. This is great news and I suspect that we have a small but very important population of this chunky little rodent living on the reserve. If you are lucky enough to see a gingery mouse whilst out on your walk look out for the robust size (like a Wood Mouse that has been doing weights), very long tail, bright fur with a sharp contrast between the ginger uppers and snow white belly.

As for a yellow neck.... well, you will be lucky  to see this as it only forms a narrow band bentween the front legs across the chest!

 

Thanks to Nicole Khan for the pics
