    Looks like a shrew to me  do you have any details, such as size etc.  Any sign of a nest?  Might there have been other babies nearby?


    I Googled "Baby shrew" and found quite a few pics that looked rather like it, but none in quite the same position to be sure of the shape of the muzzle.  the middle one is the nearest.


    Did you leave it where you found it?  Maybe the mother would find and retreive it.


    Its incredibly well camouflaged - at first I couldn't see it at all!
