Great photo Edward!
Did you get a good look at the neck/chest markings to be able to discount yellow-necked mouse, as this is a possibility in your location?

...Is this not a little too north for YNM?
Hi Graham - no, there are a few NBN records in that location.
Had a look at my photos and on the net, I cannot say that I can see any strong difference between Wood and Yellow Necked, but thanks for pointing out that they exist, I am posting another photo taken last year same location (My back garden)
Hi Edward - this post is of a yellow-necked mouse http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/238018 showing the diagnostic continuous band of golden-brown colour from shoulder to shoulder. In a wood mouse there is either no brown on the chest, or just a small spot or vertical 'smear'. Where the two species are sympatric (i.e. the ranges overlap), we can only distinguish between them if the observer gets a good enough view of these chest markings, and a side view rarely gives this. Therefore, whilst wood mice are a lot more common than yellow-necked mice, I wouldn't ID any further than genus level (they both belong to the Apodemus genus) for either of the posts.
