The tiny harvest mouse

The tiny harvest mouse (this is in the UK) lives in long tussocky grassland, reed-beds, hedgerows, farmland and around woodland edges.

It is mainly vegetarian, eating seeds and fruits, but will also eat invertebrates. Harvest mice build a spherical nest of tightly woven grass, high-up in the tall grasses, in which the female will give birth to around six young.
