    Or a vole.

    Yeah I would go for a mouse. We have a few in our allotment part of the garden. Accidentally dug up thier nest last year image I felt awful... but now they are happy under my shed.

    I have a vole hole near a path. It doesn't cause any problems so I just leave it.

    The local cats might stake it out.

    Ok thanks

    Also I believe the old mouse nests can be used by bumble bees the following year. Every bee helps.

    Yeah I would just leave it if it's not causing any harm. I didn't realise when I dug his home up. I felt awful!
