Field Vole and nest under a Corrugated Iron sheet.
No interactions present.
I'm inclined to agree with field vole because the fur doesn't have a reddish tinge and the tail looks shorter, but that could be because the end is either buried in the vegetation or chomped off (I'm v cautious about these things!).
Does anyone know if that nest is diagnostic of a field vole vs a bank vole?

is diagnostic as the Bank Vole digs a tunnel and builds down that also Bank Vole nest entrances tend to have food stores or eaten/half eaten food often Rose Hips near by as this one just uploaded http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/262523

Thanks for that Roger - very useful difference, and happy to agree with field vole now I know that.
I only learnt the Bank Vole signs from iSpot it was fantastic to know what I was looking at when I saw the Bank Voles Nest.
