A GREEDY dormouse ate so much in a bird feeder it got too fat to get out.
It was trapped for hours as birds pecked at the seeds around him.
Ex-banker Cheryl Hewins, 72, called experts for advice before freeing him from the feeder in her garden in Ventnor, Isle of Wight.
Cheryl said: “I was surprised to find the thing sitting in my birdfeeder, he must have been there all night and eaten so much he couldn’t get out.”
The National Trust’s Catherine Holder said he was fattening up for hibernation.
She added: “Cheryl was a bit panicked about finding it in her feeder.
“I quite couldn’t believe it when I saw the photo.
