 A man discovers a family of mice in his yard and constructs a lovely little village for them.

Simon Dell, a British photographer, spotted a family of mice in his Sheffield yard some time ago.

Many others in his position would have been curious about how to get rid of them, but Simon was not one of them. He, on the other hand, decided to construct a charming small village for the mice to make them feel more at ease. And the mice returned him handsomely for his kindness by providing this lovely and delightful picture shoot.

“I was once in the yard photographing the birds, and then I was mowing the lawn when I observed a little scurrying mouse.” I recognized it was a very small house mouse when I looked closer, and she stood like a meerkat on two legs on the cut grass, looking around. “She was so adorable that I knew she’d be the star of my shots right away,” the photographer stated. The man then sat and watched the mouse dash back and forth, nibbling on the nuts she had discovered. He then reasoned that he might construct a more stable shelter or home for the mouse, where she could store her resources and flee threats.

Simon called the first mouse George and the second Stuart, but then he discovered another mouse and realized he had a mouse family living in his yard. The mouse colony evolved, and more and more dwellings arose, each with a distinct exit, allowing the mice to flee if a predator should find them. Simon also began to provide additional food to the mice for them to produce greater winter supplies.

There are around 5 mice in Simon’s village, including Mildred, a large pregnant female. Simon intends to resupply his mouse town before the holidays. He feeds them and feels grateful to be in their company.

The mice, according to the man, rapidly learned to allow him to get extremely near to them, even though he had no intention of taming them.

They don’t regard him as a threat.
