House mouse

Welcome to iSpot.

This is a house mouse, note the dirty grey/brown fur. If you put up an identification I'll agree to it. When you do make sure you click on 'get recommended' after putting in the name and iSpot will fill in the scientific name for you (Mus musculus).

Wood mouse

In the first picture the underneath looks whiter so it could be a wood mouse (Apodemus sylvaticus)?
