    Glad you liked it there! I was there myself just a bit later than you on August 5. It might be worth checking your images on the possibity you’ve seen Yellow-necked Mouse (Apodemus flavicollis). That’s the only species I’ve seen there although Wood Mouse is of course very much a possiblity as well. The chestband is an easy feature to distinguish them both. On your picture it’s difficult to judge.

      Thanks for the feedback Lennart. I’ve looked at the other photos I have and difficult for me based on the fur colors I could distinguish on the chestband if it is a “flavicollis” or a “sylvaticus” mouse…
