Not seen quite as many as that yet Jan.Saw a few at Wyver lane just before Christmas and i'm hoping to now see the mole as opposed to just the hill :giggle:

There are loads of molehills on the common in front of Penn Wood. Part of the common is the local cricket pitch and they were on that too ... which I thought showed remarkably good taste on the part of the moles :rofl:

Opened up my compost bin and saw a wood mouse scamper off :scream: :yay:

Bit of fright, but pleased too. Could have been a rat!

Kylie went off scenting a :fox: but I saw it cross the path and go down to the river early this morning without her noticing in Millwood.

It was out in almost daylight.

The woods are full of squirrels to Kylie's delight as there are loads of hazel trees.

Cleaning the lounge windows this morning,i was fascinated to see two Woodmice :yay:
I have them on the garden but they are soo fast :outtahere: one of them got the biggest piece
of bread and ran off with it followed quickly by the second one..I had a look later and under
the hedge is a ball of leaves and bits of wood and feathers...I think it will be a nest.So i will
keep a lookout,they are so lovely but boy can they move..

Stink of fox in my garden. What do they eat? We seem to get scraps of old meat dropped by the corvids which I hide from Kylie.

:hello1: Jan

Very distinctive smell as well isn't it!

They eat a hugely varied diet and anything from small mammals,fish,fruits,plants,grasses and tubors.
