The Scottish mice helping to rewild Ealing

Tiny harvest mice are being exported from East Kilbride to Ealing to help with a rewilding project.

The harvest mice, which are an endangered species, tend to favour warmer and drier conditions than they would encounter normally in the wild in Scotland.

It is hoped the mice from Calderglen Zoo in South Lanarkshire will thrive in their new grassland territory, as part of the Ealing Wildlife Group project.
