Return of Step Mouse

These were taken through the patio windows on New Years Eve during a lull in the bad weather. You can see the Christmas tree decorations reflected in the glass. We put out some food for the birds which included this bowl of oats. The robin likes this stuff and the dunnock and other birds will eat it up if you sprinkle it about. Step Mouse aka Tickets has other plans for the oats though. He mounted this daring daylight raid that started out all covert but ended up being anything but.

Luckily he survived the day. Move over Despereaux, there's a new fearless mouse on the block. I managed to secure his movie rights and am proud to present his debut movie - seen below. This was filmed this week. Keep watching to see a guest appearance by another denizen of the back garden. The narrator is my sister.
