Pictures of a woodmouse taken early morning in August 09 in a garden backing on to Westminster Park. It is not unknown for woodmice to raid feeders but this one must have been very hungry. To get to the feeder which is 6 feet off the ground it had to climb a 8 feet pole and then scramble down a supporting wire. This one stayed put whilst I took these shots and was still eating when I went away. Woodmice are common in gardens around the Park.
