One of the Wood Mice found during a small mammal trapping session at college.
No interactions present.
I did agree with wood mouse, but now I'm not so sure about the size of that splodge on its chest. Some yellow-necked mice do have a splodge rather than a complete band of colour from shoulder to shoulder and that splodge (scientific terminology BTW) looks relatively big. Any thoughts anyone?
Nicola - was whoever was supervising your trapping session confident this was a wood mouse (I assume so as you've said "I'm as sure as I can be")?

I think he would have been very excited to have found a Yellow-necked Mouse. He was confident that all we found were wood mice and voles and he has had a lot of experience of small mammal trapping. But... you never know!
