Dead shrew with pen for scale 1

A shrew, dead on my drive one morning looking very bedraggled. I don't know enough about shrews to know what species it is.

Common shrew

The tail looks a little long for common shrew however, the size (using the pen for scale) shows this must be a common shrew. I suspect it may have drown in the rain or just died of exposure - shrews are prone to this.
