Field Mouse in our garden

On Tuesday I spent some time in the garden. I noticed an area of Herb Robert twitching in a way that didn’t seem to be caused by the wind. I set my camera up and waited. Different parts of the plant twitched. I kept seeing movement in the shadows and occasional glimpses of brown. Was it a mouse or was it a Wren? When it showed itself I could see that it was grabbing hold of the seedheads on the Herb Robert with its little pale feet and eating them.

I had also cleared a lot of Forget Me Nots near the Herb Robert and a Robin kept flying in to get the insects that had been uncovered.
