I can't see the tail in this photo and with the fur being wet it's also difficult to see the coat colour. What feature(s) made you decide it was bank rather than short-tailed field?

Hi Gill, I decided that it was a bank vole due to the tail being about 50 percent the length of the body, the ears were obvious and the tail was dark on top and lighter underneath.
Cheers for now, Calum.
Hi Calum - if the tail was 50% of the body I'm happy to agree with bank - bank voles can have chomped-off tails but I don't think field voles can get stretched-out ones:-)
Gill is right it is almost impossible to tell this is a bank vole.
I've agreed based on your comments and on the two tone fur, rich russet tips and black shaft.
