Miles, from Bournemouth, was over the moon when he saw the harvest mouse stretching between the barley stalks.

He added: “The mouse is so tiny but really photogenic, it looks so cute as it goes about his business.

“It’s always a pleasure to photograph harvest mice and their antics, they never seem to realise that they are so small and are quite fearless when it comes to climbing up things.”
