Hi, This wood mouse was found in the garden at work by one of the garden staff.It seemed to ignore the garden staff, but you can see on one of the photos it's right eye is closed. How odd is this behaviour?

Sore eye

The eye just looks sore - it could have been caught in a spat with another mouse or had a narrow escape from a predator.
