Dell, a wildlife photographer who lives in Sheffield in the United Kingdom, had an alternate thought for mice in his garden. Rather than pursuing them away, he constructed them a house.
“Being a keen wildlife photographer, I am often taking photos of birds on the feeders in the garden,” Dell said. “Then one day, I looked down to see a very cute little house mouse standing up in the grass.”
Dell was exceptionally keen on catching a few photos of the cheerful mouse couple and their little baby. Sadly, he couldn’t he couldn’t coax the animals to approach enough to get a picture. So he built a house for them.
The house include a pond, a tiny long cabin and a ladder leading to a sheltered woodpile.
How for their safety from predators nearby, like cats, birds etc he said
“Knowing there are cats just over the fence I thought I would give them a little more safety, so collected some logs and made them a log pile home,” Dell said. “The mice are very trusting and know I mean them no harm. I love nature so am happy to live alongside such cute creatures.”
They unquestionably are cute tenants. Dell keeps on messing around with them. A praiseworthy landlord, he even decorates their houses for holidays. But he’s humble about his project.
“I saw the opportunity to take some nice photos,” he said. “At the same time, giving the mice a nice home and a safe place to live. I’ll put a bit of food out each day for them, and on local walks, I’ll pick berries, nuts, blackberries, stuff like that, and put them out.”
