Or maybe a Vole with such a short tail? Did you take the picture cracking either way.
Too Old Soon Too Late Smart
Iam not sure vole or mouse I took picture at Cannock chase
Looks like a Kestrel to me.
Specialist vole catchers.
“Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama
