    Shed mystery 'poltergeist' was mouse
    "A man who thought he had a poltergeist was amazed to discover a mouse had been "stockpiling" items in his shed.

    When screws and metal objects kept reappearing in a box containing bird feed, Steve Mckears thought he "was going mad".

    The 72-year-old from Severn Beach, near Bristol said he found a screw in a tub of crushed peanuts in February.

    After the mystery continued for several weeks he set up a camera which revealed the rodent responsible."
    "We were amazed at what he was doing, we just couldn't believe it," he said."

    Only now realized that the little guy has been cleaning up every night for a month, each cleanup lasting a couple of hours!
    Pensioner, 72, left baffled as to who was tidying his garden shed at night discovered it was a mouse | Daily Mail Online
    "Mr Holbrook, who lives just a few minutes drive from his friend, is a keen wildlife photographer and said he had to see the DIY mouse for himself.

    He said: 'I've been calling him Metal Mickey but some people have been saying he's just mouse proud.

    'I was quite amazed to see it - it is an amazing mouse.

    'Steve asked if he could use my trail camera to film whatever it was that was moving the objects in his shed.

    'The mouse was chucking things into the box - we thought it was a ghost or something at first. I thought I have to see this for myself.'

    The pair filmed the mouse tidying away the metal objects from around midnight to 2.30am - an activity it has been doing every night for around a month.

    Stephen added: 'It was doing it for about two hours that night - he must have had to go for a sleep after it.

    'I've seen a mouse moving objects to make a nest but never metal objects. It's quite amazing.

    'It's still busy doing it now.'
