With the temperatures dropping, more snow and me ending up with a rotten cold. It's not been the best of weeks. I'm in denial about the list of things I need to do. So what better way to spend my time than watching the birds visiting the bird table. They just never seem to stop! Then I spotted something at ground level, large, brown and fury. Yes a rat!! Obviously trying to get a free meal. I couldn't believe my eyes when it started to climb a tree like shrub next to the bird table. I grabbed my camera but me cluttering around scared it off! It didn't come back but whilst waiting a rather smaller cuter little Field mouse appeared. Hopefully Mr Rat won't back back!!
