Mouse experiment on Winterwatch - my version
After watching Winterwatch last night, I decided to have a go at the mouse food trials.
This was where they put down 3 pots of food, one of cheese, one of grapes and one of nuts.
In their experiement the mouse went for the grapes first.
I left my trail camera out infront of three pots of food in my front garden as I know we have wood mice under the Yew tree. I used apples instead of grapes.
A cat walked past around midnight but ignored the food.
This Muntjac deer decided to come and investigate the food.
He ate the cheese first, then ate all of the nuts and lastly the apple.
There wasn't any left for the mice!
