Mus domesticus L.
This little fella has been seen several times recently helping itself to the RSPB garden bird seed-mix from the feeder hanging in a bush at the end of the garden.
It (they?) appear to be living quite successfully under the decking, accessed from a small run in the corner of a raised bed which is utilised as compost heap, sunflower plot, and site of a recently planted hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) "hedge". This multi-functionality all within an area approx 100 x 80cm square!
