Looks like you were all a bit perplexed by yesterday’s picture. Time to put you out of your misery and get Eric to reveal the answer…

And there it is. Winter has finally arrived on these shores and here, escaping from the cold weather, is a furry little pub mouse.

And here you can see the tiny fella in its natural habitat at the Ship & Shovell. Probably about to enjoy a tasty pint of Badger – just the ticket after a hard day’s cheese-hoarding.

Well done to Kat and Lord Sükråt for correctly intentifying our friend as some sort of mammal. No doubt Eric will be back with more (and hopefully easier) puzzles in the near future. Bye for now!
