Mice or possibly Mouse

Posted: 03/08/2014 at 11:28

I think what I thought were harvest mice must be baby mice; used to get loads of dead ones in my London garden; there were many cats in the area. The one my dog caught is just greyish brown all over, no light colour on the belly.

I have got cobs forming, but on strangely short plants. I did get them going quite early and they were hit by a bit of cold. Someone down the road started his later and his plants are much taller.

Just looked it up in Thorburn's Mammals and it must be either wood or house mouse. The ones I sometimes see dead when out for a walk must be harvest mice.

I thought field mice were tiny; just been out to measure this creature and it is 16/17 cm nose to tail.

Now there's irony

There is a lovely line in the Blackadder series, when he asks his servant; 'Do you know what irony is?' and the servant replies, 'Yes, it's like coppery and silvery'.
