Wood mouse

It's a wood mouse, they are far more common around houses than people think. Strictly speaking the house mouse should be re-named farm mouse or warehouse mouse because they are not seen around houses that much.

House mice are a dirty black/dark brown on the back and a dirty white underneath.

Note that wood mouse and field mouse are alternative names for the same animal!
