Thanks for that. I would try and find the mouse and turn it over for another pic but with the rain we have had, and are still having, I reckon it will have washed away by now.T

Most likely wood mouse but can't be sure

I agree with Graham - in this location it's most likely wood mouse but it could be either, and without the neck/chest markings we can only go as close as the Apodemus genus with the ID.
