Is this a mouse or a baby rat? I am veering towards mouse but can't be sure

Must feel at home

Normally nocturnal fur lacks warm brown hue of yellow-necked mouse and does not have this species complete collar,I have a family of them in my garden and they don't do any harm.

I've agreed with wood mouse based purely on the law of averages. This is a young animal and, therefore, impossible to tell wood mouse from yellow-necked mouse. However, there are far more wood than y-n mice. Also you are on the edge of the yellow-necked mouse range.
