Up early this morning - Rhonda on a 'training day', so our usual routine all out of kilter - and went to the kitchen to make a cup of tea. "Denny-the-Dog" followed me in to the kitchen and made a bee-line for the corner of the cupboards and stood there looking intently upwards with his tail wagging - unusual for him as the first thing he wants to do is to head outside!
Had a look and found one dead grey field mouse in one of the traps in the little 'runway' they were following between the stove and the bread bins.
Oh well! Feel sorry for the poor little thing 'cos it was only trying to survive the cold of winter - but - should not have tried to make my kitchen its home!
Will set the traps again tonight in case there are any others around!
