What is living in my attic?

I can hear something scurry above my head. But no signs when I check for evidence. My study has a ceiling, and above that is the loft/storage/attic area. I can hear things scurrying there at certain times of day and night. Sound big-ish to me (rat sized?) but I also know even little things can sound big.

Pulled the ladder down, climbed up with the torch and checked around. No sign of anything - no chewed material, no droppings, not a sign. But there is definitely something 'up there'.
What is the most humane way to check if something is living in my attic? Is there a kind of trap, or test, or something? I would feel a bit weird calling out the pest exterminators if there are no signs of anything.
BTW I am living in SE England, and it is pretty cold (there is no heating up in said attic/loft) so it is not geckos or something like that. I am guessing it has to be a mammal of some kind.
