A small deep hole about 7cm across has appeared in the soil in my garden. There is no evidence of a mole so I'm wondering what has been burying under the earth. Has anyone any ideas?
Rat does seem te most likely.
Hope it's no a hippopotamus.
I fear it is a rat; one year my beetroot did not grow; the neighbours who were watering the garden when I was away working reckoned that it was a rat; same size hole and beetroot apparently do not like the movement of the earth involved with underground rat runs. Near the bird feeders the same sized holes appeared and I'm afraid that I resort to rat poison about once a year - this is where flowers are grown, not veg.
