Two nights ago William brought Ian a present in the night - a dead mouse. The following day he brought two more. Today we gave him a lot to eat in the hope that he wouldn't be bothered to catch any. He slept the majority of the day, but has now gone hunting.

It appears that Ian, in an effort to encourage our squirrel, placed peanuts below the bird feeders, which encouraged the mice. Today I saw one scamper from teh bottom of the feeder into the box plants. Much as we like the mice being in the garden we shall not be putting any more food on the ground as Willam is obviously finding them an easy target. Shame.

Get a load of holly branches and put them around the base of the feeder. That way the mice can feed in peace but William cannot get at them.
