hole in the ground - Bristol (Hanham area)

Hi gardeners :) , I would be grateful if you could have a look at the attached photo and try to determine which animal is the author of the dig...? Grateful, Gabriela <3

    I think that could be a rat hole. Is there a bird feeder near by? I'm going on hole diameter in relation to the emerging violets.

    I think you’re right @rachelQrtJHBjb ... the size and the fan shaped patch of excavated soil which is typical of rat holes.

  • Thank you both for writing☺️
    There is no food /bird feeder in the garden at all. But I am just a few meters away from the back of a little takeaway. Time to investigate!
    Thank you again❤️💓🥶

    It might be an idea to contact the local authority Environmental Health Officer, if there are rats close to a takeaway ... they'll need dealing with PDQ
