How big was the vole?
OU Certificate in Contemporary Science
about 4inches so is it a field or bank vole?
short tail - one third of its body length - shows it's a field vole

My computer screen isn't good enough to be sure whether the tail is naturally short or chomped off, but the fur colour certainly looks more like field vole (not reddish) so if Jeremy can see a rounded end to the tail I agree with that.
Thankyou for the comments,next time I will be sure to look for the length of the tail.
