Bank Vole, Clethrionomys glareolus
The other day this small Rodent entered our house for a brief period, before it died of its internal injuries. It had been brought into the garden by a cat and then escaped indoors.
I have no idea what species it is, not one I have come across before.
It is grey with black, and very small. It is about 6cm long, 1.5cm wide. Its tail is about 5cm, I think. And it is also very very cute.
It has been a bit of a bad and very sad story this spring and a bad beginning of summer.
