    Please identify these fish

    Don't know if I'm honest. In all my years of fishing I have never actually seen a Ruffe. My money is still on Chub & Perch but my Paddy Power account has never been in credit :wallbanging:

    What species of mouse?

    I have slow worms on my allotment, not seen any this year yet, I dont think mice would be a match for most of the ones I have seen. Cats are the biggest problem to wildlife around here.

    Bird's Nest Identification
