2 - Common Shrew? 04.07. Ojcowski NP, overall length ~ 8cm, tail length ~ 4cm
3 - Common Shrew? 21.07.2019 Poleski NP, overall length ~ 9cm, tail length ~ 4cm
4 - mouse sp.? 05.07. Ojcowski NP, overall length ~ 9cm, tail length ~ 4cm

1 - Cannot be 100% certain from this view but would go for Yellow necked mouse
2 - Struggling with this can you post any other photos and any idea of size compared to the common shrew as there are a few possibilities
3 - Common Shrew
4 - young brown rat

Can't help further with the ID beyond what Mark says, but as an aside, shrews are not rodents

Thanks for the IDs. I'll post some more photos of the shrew later.

Caught me. I only realised my mistake when I had already posted the thread.
