As I was sat in the garden today I noticed this little Wood Mouse scurrying across the back of the raised bed with half an apple that I had put out for the birds - (I have a store of windfalls from my apple tree) - so I managed a few shots of it feeding on the apple.

The brown fluff above the brown dirt. CUTE!

As we were sat on a log in a wooded area, this little Wood Mouse came scurrying past us and paused just long enough for me to get this shot. They have very long tails - longer than their bodies!

The tiny, brown wood mouse is one of our most common rodents and is very likely to be found in the garden. It is similar to the house mouse, but has larger ears and eyes relative to its size.


The wood mouse is sometimes known as the long-tailed field mouse and is widespread; it is probably most common in woodland, rough grassland and gardens. It is mostly nocturnal and an agile climber. Wood mice will gather food stores of berries and seeds in the autumn, which they keep in underground burrows or sometimes in old birds' nests. Females have up to six litters a year of between four and eight young, and may even breed over winter if food is abundant.


The wood mouse is our commonest mouse and the one you are most likely to find in your garden. Because of this, it often falls prey to domestic cats, foxes and owls; in fact, tawny owls may not breed if wood mouse numbers are low as it restricts their diet.


Hoy subo una fotografía de uno de los mamíferos más comunes, pero que por su tímido comportamiento, no son vistos muchas veces. El ratón de campo (Apodemus sylvaticus), éste ejemplar se encontraba una mañana especialmente fría ensimismado alimentándose de los frutos de un acebo. Era un claro del suelo del bosque en el que la capa de nieve se había fundido y estos preciados frutos en época de escasez, depositados en el suelo por el temporal, se le hacían asequibles al pequeño roedor.


El acebo (ilex aquifolium), por su condición de especie perennifolia, tiene una importante labor como hospedador, al dar abrigo y alimento a un elevado número de aves y mamíferos, en los hayedos y robledales aletargados durante el invierno. Su denso follaje actúa como una cámara aislante, que puede mantener en su interior una temperatura de hasta 4 grados superior a la ambiental.

Dit muisje dacht de dans te ontspringen en glipte uit de melkbus ... helaas, moeder uil pikte haar even later uit het gras ... actie mislukt, 😢!


Samen met Judith bracht ik dit jaar een bezoek aan de steenuiltjes van Noctua Nature Hides in Barchem en wat was het de moeite waard, het was puur genieten!


Dank aan Hans en Cees voor hun inzet en zijn gastvrijheid! 👍

Apodemus sylvaticus sub. callipides (Linnaeus, 1758) basasagu - european wood mouse - ratón de campo

(Apodemus sylvaticus)



Amazed to see this mouse in daytime. Last week it was a Short-tailed Field Vole in Daylight.


As you can probably see, the Mouse is picking up bits the birds have dropped from the bird-table in my garden.

Spotted this juvenile in our garden feeding on the peanut pieces that had been dropped earlier by a Great Spotted Woodpecker.

They have a basement apartment under the patio but they've now set up home in a large garden tub. The top has become their rooftop terrace so we've added a pool and alfresco dining area. They seemed to be settling in OK.

Another image of the Wood Mouse that I photographed in our back garden eating one of my windfalls that I split in half for the birds.

Also called Woodmouse This one didn’t seem to be bothered about me being so close.

Cheeky little chap, but so cute, eating dropped bird food. Thanks for looking at my pictures.

This little mouse usually comes to visit us at dusk most evenings, but sadly when the light is poor so not as sharp as i would have liked!

Das winzige Ding saß heute zitternd bei uns auf dem Rasen.

(Apodemus sylvaticus)This was taken in my garden. The mice live under or near the bird feeders - the birds are so messy they leave lots of food for these little guys. I rarely see them though. This one was very brave - I was only about 6 feet away!

Un petit mulot pour changer des oiseaux !

Long-tailed Fieldmouse having breakfast.

Look who came out to watch me gardening this afternoon..

It's such a rare occurrence even the wildlife comes out to have a look!!

This little woodmouse was busy foraging in the grass and weeds in front of me while I was photographing a grass snake. He decided to run up the foxglove to provide the perfect photo opportunity! The background is a lake but unfortunately it was a rather dull and overcast day so needed a high ISO to take the picture and the lake came out rather white instead of blue!

I saw a Wood Mouse in the garden again this morning, so hopefully I'll be able to have another crack at photographing them again soon!


This one was taken at midnight with two off-camera flashes: key light above and right of the camera, with a bit of backlight from a flash behind, below and left of the mouse.

This mouse was spotted helping itself to the seeds left out for the birds in our back garden!

Waldmaus - Apodemus sylvaticus

Wood mouse

Diese kleine Waldmaus holt sich, was die Vögel aus ihrem Futterhaus fallen lassen. Sie kletterte auf die Terrasse, sauste zum Futterhaus, stopfte einige Körner in sich hinein und sauste wieder zurück unter das Holzdeck.

This little mouse is looking for bird seed, falling down from the bird feeder.
