Must be the daftest mole around he set up home in one of my tort pens a while ago and didn't make much mess so me being a softy left him to it.
However things changed and he started producing hills big time so action had to be taken. I put the hose pipe down a hole and gave him a bath so for a few days no new hills and I thought that was that.
This morning however he was back and actively digging while I looked on so ot came the spade and as soon as he started pushing up soil I pushed the spade into the ground and pulled out a pile of soil but no mole, now this carried on till I had a pretty large hole so I gave in and put the hose in it again and to my surprise up popped a mole which I caught and I'm sure you will all be happy I released in the field opposite my house.

I didn't realise they were so small. He looks cute and sounds quite a character.

We always have a mole problem. Most odd because none of our neighbours around us have any mole hills! Never seen one though.

We have had the mole catcher, but because they breed so well I dont think we will ever be free.
