If you’ve got bird feeders in your garden you’ll soon realise that they can be really messy eaters. Bullfinches break the seeds scattering them everywhere, the tits grab and run spilling more than they carry and jackdaws can smash your fat balls to pulp.
At the car park feeders today I noticed we were now getting a few chaffinches visiting and as they don’t seem to like perching on feeders they were hovering around below picking up the other birds mess. But they weren’t the only ones!
Out of the corner of my eye I noticed some movement in the wall and as I watched our new cleaner appeared enjoying the seeds and nuts the birds left behind. One brown mouse.
