Usual problem

As so often on iSpot this animal could be a wood mouse or it could be a yellow-necked mouse; impossible to say as it has its arm in the way.

Is it deliberate? Is there a mouse Mafia whose sole purpose is to drive us mad trying to identify them? Why can't one, just one, put its little arms up and show us its chest!

I think its time to stop for the night!
