Cuckoos and Wood Mouse – 18th May

This afternoon at least three Cuckoos were recorded on and around the sight. At the bottom of the ‘grand staircase’ on the riverside bank a small mammal was seen to cross a patch of bare earth and disappear down a hole under a plant. After some discussion it was decided that it was most likely a Wood Mouse, otherwise known as a Long-tailed Field Mouse . AE + PS.
