In the evening, the Wood Mice were feeding on the bird feeders.

While I was working at Organic Blooms in Latteridge I photographed a Male Blackbird & a few Redwings feeding on the last remaining Ivy Berries by the entrance. As there was still snow about, it was visible to see the footprints of some of the Animals that have been on the site. These were Rabbits, Brown Rats [not everybody's favourite] & Muntjac.
