It's a mouse alright.

The big ears and beady eyes are give aways of this. I can't see enough detail to say it's a wood mouse though.
It could be a house mouse, it certainly looks grey enough. A wood mouse would have much paler fur on it's belly. Did you see this? If fur is the same colour all over, then it's a house mouse (even if there's no houses nearby).
