I was cycling and then I saw a blob of brown go shooting into some plants. I thought it was a mouse, but when I saw it, it definitely wasn't. I ran inside to get my camera, and luckily it was still there. Could anybody tell me what it is?

You can't i.d. weasel from stoat just on size. Everything starts off small..... For what it is worth, the face looks 'young'.
Could be a weasel. Photo and size don't rule out stoat though, IMO.

Weasel or stoat.
The easiest way to differentiate is the tail, the stoat has a dark tip on the tail.
Apart from that, it's a difficult one to ID
