Thank you for your reply. Sorry I did not respond sooner, I new I posted the picture online but could not remember where and I finally had chance to find it! I initially thought it was a shrew but looking at the pictures online I did not think so. The pictures you found are similar so seems it may be although I remember it being bigger than those in the pictures. Yes, we left it where it was. It was well camouflaged and we found it because of the loud cry it was making. It was obviously either lost or abandoned so it was sad to leave it.
