Am familiar with our native Dormouse,

they are beautiful with long whiskers and the other identifying features.Hope yours managed to breed before it met its end.

Garden dormouse

You had me going for a second, I thought you had seen it in Britain! Definitely a garden dormouse, very distinctive markings.
