Wow thanks for all the info!

Just to tease Frenchy (I'm naughty!) one of the web pages you posted says

Quote:
An extremely agile creature, the woodland jumping mouse has the ability to leap a distance of four metres in one bound.
According to Wiki, they eat earthworms, various insects, moth larvae, beetles, berries, nuts, seeds, fruit, leaves, flower petals and buds, crocus bulbs, grapes, gooseberries, rose hips, and apples.

And where I put it, my compost pile is nearby with lots of worms, along with a choke cherry tree and some type of spruce trees (Norway spruce?) that make really long cones. It will definitely not go hungry.

The locals here always mis-name stuff. I'm not surprised. I will pass along the info!
