Shrews in the churchyard!

Walking through the churchyard this week I came across this poor shrew (dead) that had probably been caught and dropped by a cat. I include it in my blog because it is one clue to why we have a good population of Tawny owls locally. This is one of their favourite foods, along with voles, so a healthy shrew population is good news for the owls, which by the way, have been hooting vigorously in the last few weeks.
