Wood mouse

At first sight I thought you had a yellow-necked mouse, you are on the very edge of their range, as there appears to be a collar of colour across the chest.

However, if you blow the picture up you can see the collar is not continuous, therefore, a wood mouse - or is it one of these mythical hybrids?

I guess...

...I'm convinced that there is enough showing not to be yellow-necked.
