Issue No: 158        September 2021


The harvest mouse lives in hedgerows, reedbeds, long tussocky grassland, around woodland edges and on farmland. It is so-called because it was most often seen at harvest time when the mice were disturbed. They build a spherical nest of tightly-woven grass high up in the tall stems. It is the only British mammal to have a prehensile tail which can be used like a fifth limb to hold on with. These tiny mice love the smell of pollen and have been known to climb inside flowers to eat the stamens and there they often fall asleep.
