Yesterday whilst clearing the bit I cleared last year (it grew back) we discovered a great big tree stump surrounded by huge stones (my strim chum feared it might be a burial mound!!!!). In, around and underneath the stump is a warren of holes and tunnels. Big ones. Arm sized ones.
Before you start. We don't have moles, voles or snakes because this is Norn Iron and we're civilised.
Is it more likely to be rats or rabbits? How would I know which?
We also kept finding little patches of grass seed husks. Might this be a sign of wee field mice? We thought it was either birds or mice but birds aren't that tidy....we think.
Strimming ceased because 1. we didn't want to kill anyone's children and 2. we'd footered about that long that the rain came on.
Who made the tunnels and when can we let loose the strimmer without risking the mouse population?
