The Secret Life of a Helpful Mouse: A Nightly Cleaning Routine in a Man's Shed

Retired postman Rodney Holbrook, an avid wildlife photographer, discovered a whimsical scene reminiscent of Ratatouille in his shed in Builth Wells, Powys. Intrigued by nightly tidying up in his shed, he set up a night vision camera and captured a mouse neatly organizing items like clothes pegs and nuts. This charming mouse, affectionately named the "Welsh Tidy Mouse," turned Holbrook's shed into a scene of nightly order for over two months. Holbrook, fascinated by this diligent creature, observed its routine of neatly arranging objects in the shed. He humorously suggested that the mouse was so efficient it might even tidy up his wife if left there. This isn't Holbrook's first encounter with a tidy rodent; a similar incident in Bristol in 2019 became a viral sensation. The story of the Welsh Tidy Mouse offers a delightful glimpse into the unexpected and endearing behaviors of wildlife.
