Mighty wood mice

Another fine mess you've got us into
Galvanised bins are great for keeping chicken feed dry and safe from hungry creatures. A couple of times I found the lid on the floor and thought Sue was being a bit careless with the corn. Yesterday I caught the squirrel in the shed and twigged what was going on, so I placed a wooden sledge on top of the lid.

This morning both the sledge and lid were on the floor but the squirrel was nowhere to be seen, instead two rather bloated wood mice were wishing they’d brought a ladder. I scooped them out in a cardboard box and secured the bin with a chain. If there are wire cutters on the floor tomorrow .....
