Hungry Birds?

Went on the garage roof today, walked past the boiler flu and saw this:

 

 

 

Birds must be hungry.

I bet that's a mouse, rather than a bird.  For some odd reason mice seem to like chewing certain types of plastic and rubber, for example they just seem to love chewing black neoprene pipe insulation. 

 

Be interesting to see how the heck a mouse has got up there, though, although I'm convinced the little buggers can climb up rough surfaced walls, as I've never been able to understand how they used to get into the loft of our old house without climbing up a brick wall and getting in under the eaves.

I would say mice too and they can climb! You want to be sure they're not getting in that flue too!

Mice can climb up rough surfaces! I remember years ago our cat playing with a mouse (as they do before they go in for the kill) and the cat let it go for a second and the mouse ran up our roughcast house wall right up to the eaves, I couldn’t quite believe it!

We had a red brick fire place when I was a kid and mice can run up and down really easily.

We regularly got mice in the loft of our old house (cold roof) I never actually saw how they got in but I believe they just climb the rough cast wall and in through the eaves or soffit vents.
