Having searched my mammal book it is not clear what this is. I think it is a house mouse that normally lives out of doors [ we are close to woodland ]

This is an interesting one, the colour of the fur is very dark indicating house mouse, even the belly fur looks too dark for wood mouse. However, the tail is dark above and pale below which says this is a wood mouse, house mice have a uniform black tail.

Also, as has been mentioned, the habitat is wood mouse.
