Hellooo, Monday.

10 mins before my alarm was due to go off the phone rang. Dragged myself out of bed to answer it, only to hear "we're calling from the internet security centre, we'd like to talk to you about your computer." Hung up on them without saying another word and crawled back into bed. Bastards.

Fast forward: locked the front door and was walking to the car when I noticed a small bird on the fatball feeder in the front garden. It disappeared into the bushes before I got a good look, but I paused by the car for a moment to see if it would come back, and sure enough it did... but it wasn't a bird at all. It was a mouse! The feeder is next to some fairly dense bushes, which I had trimmed back to give the birds clear access, but one tiny branch was still brushed up against it, and the mouse had climbed it.

The front garden feeder has always gone down rather quicker than the back one; I'd always assumed that this was because the back one was near the bird table so the birds' attention was divided, but it seems there was another reason.

Question is, do I trim the branch back to leave the feeder exclusively for the birds, as was originally intended? Or do I let the mouse stay on?

Include mouse!

Cut the branch back. Mice will always find things to eat, and if you let it keep eating there will just be more mice.
