It’s hard to Google search for what type of rat or mouse you may have seen without having to wade through all the pages about vermin and pests.
Turns out this new little visitor to my wildlife garden is a brown rat, and a little cutie at that!
I was sculpting in the studio with the doors open and I kept watching them pop their little head out of the brambles, checking the coast was clear before scooping up little bits of seed in their tiny hands. They didn’t mind me being there, and I even had chance to go and get my camera and capture some lovely reference photos of them.
Thank you for visiting, my wild little friend with the beautiful eyes.
