The 2017 Christmas Mammal Box goes away for another year…….

With another Christmas over, I have taken out the Christmas Mammal Sitting room, popping it away for another year! This set-up always makes me smile and I love setting it up and rejuvenating it each year. A week of small mammal activity and it can look a little worse for wear, but a few new items and a bit of TLC and it is ready to return for its seasonal appearance! You may have seen the set up on a previous blog, when it appeared on Midlands Today, the week before Christmas, but I’ve just uploaded some of the footage and wanted to share some of it!

The wood mice and voles have been stars this year! They have created very little damage and have popped in and out on a regular basis, providing me with some lovely clips. Here are a selection of the best ones!

Although this set up didn’t make the papers in the same way that my snack bar did,  it did make the Internet HERE 

This Christmas set has now been replaced with a more natural scene… but I have some cool ideas for some more set ups in 2018! If you have any ideas for small mammal set-ups, then do get in contact!!
