who is digging in the garden?

I thought it might be foxes as we have a lot of them about and I am quite often stepping in what they should be bagging up and putting in the bin. Other candidates squirrels or cats. The holes are about 9 inches diameter and 4-5" deep and maybe squirrels as I am finding a number of dug-up tulip bulbs.
I'm asking because I put down Blood Fish & Bonemeal each year, but hear more and more of it attracting digging foxes.

    Strangely the foxes here seem to like digging holes in the lawn instead. About the only place that doesn't get BFF. I don't feed the lawn at all, it only needs cutting more.  The deer has currently taken a fancy to tulips.

    I doubt that would be either squirrels or cats, although the former will certainly dig up bulbs, and cats are notorious for sh*tting anywhere and everywhere. Foxes are a possibility with holes that size, and the poo can certainly be messy. Squirrel stuff is barely noticeable.
    Badgers too, for big holes, but they target lawns more, and can make a real mess of them.
    A photo would be helpful if you can manage one. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
