Mole Comes Visiting

Mr Mole


Stumpy the not-so-clever dog spends his days digging up the garden when he’s not pretending he’s a goat. This week I have TWICE caught him with a perfectly unharmed mole in his mouth.

We’ve no objection to moles in the garden, as one of the things they’ll be happy to eat is the young of the voles which plague us, so of course I relieved him from it and set it free to bury itself again. I knew moles were strong diggers but I really had no idea quite how strong. When I held them in my cupped hands, they were pushing my hands apart in their efforts to ‘dig’ away. An incredible little creature.
