I found somebody hiding in the greenhouse this morning!

Normally, you would go by the length of the tail; short being a field vole. However, in this case even thought the tail looks short I think it is an optical illusion as the fur is just too rich a chestnut brown to be a field vole so I've agreed with bank vole.

I agree - I thought that if the animal had been completely side on to the camera and not at an angle the tail would have looked more than a third of the body length and, as you say, very red fur. Extremely cute too.
