What has been digging under my fence?

Something has burrowed under my fence at the side and back of the garden. The fence is only about 3ft high and has quite big holes, foxes jump it easily.

The garden behind mine has been ignored so it’s very overgrown. I can’t see any identifiable droppings or prints either.

I haven’t seen any rabbits around here, but we had a hedgehog visit a couple of years ago.

Any ideas?

    Hello and welcome to the forum 😊

    My money’s on rabbits. 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    Mine too  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • Thanks, I’m hoping it’s not a monster rat!

    The same thing has happened in my garden this year. Neighbours moved last August and new tenants have let the garden get very overgrown with weeds. Noticed the hole about six weeks ago and looks like something was trying to get out of my garden. Brick walls on other two sides
