What rodent is this ?

Can anyone identify this rodent ? It looks like a rat but the face and profile dont seem to be rattish and as far as I can see its tail has short fur. I thought rats had skin tails. It is living in the tree in the garden in Ireland and is coming everyday to the bird table to eat bird seed. I have attached photos. Sorry for quality as I took them from a security camera.

In IRELAND? Im from northern ireland and over here we don't get VERY many different species of wild animals.. IT does look like a weasel(SP?) or a mongoose(SP?) But the pictures are not clear enough. Can you try and search the net for different species of animals in Ireland and that might help!

It does kinda have the face of a rat.It is probably a species of rat.I am not sure.I just tried looking it up,but can't find anything.
I looked up stoats too and in the picture the animal does not look like a stoat.

You don't have squirrels over there? That was my first impression.
Good luck
It's cute whatever it is

Dose it look something like this?

this is a Mongoose. This is a picture of a Dwarf Mongoose which the face is small and short compared to the larger one which would give it a rat face but the pictures are blury the ears are the same thoughth out line shape of it.

Or this one which is a Stoat. these are the only 2 pictures that it looks like to me but the pictures are blurry and I cant make them out to well. If you have other better picrues post them. or if you see it again see if you can get better pictures.

I think you are in the wrong place buddy.
You are the weirdest cat I ever seen.
Now matter how big or small wierd or normal we or animals may be we can learn to love and get along and love is what makes it all worth wild. Becuase Beautie is in the eye of the beholder an no one is ugly or more prettyer then anything eals we are all equal. There are some ugly people and things but that is becuase man kind makes them this way do to thier actions.
