8 days to Christmas

Today when it’s only 8 days to Christmas we bring you this little wood mouse that we have seen several times this year. The beautiful little thing has some different colour variations than the ordinary ones.  – Here it is in the snow in the food set out for the birds at the family summerhouse, and the birds are glad to share 🙂


The Wood Mouse is a funny little creature

There are a lot of Wood Mice in Iceland. They are well adapted to the cold and live in underground holes which they dig. They gather all kinds of seeds and stuff in their holes for the winter.

If it gets really cold they might try and get into your house or preferably your summerhouse and you will see their droppings next time you’re there.
