Who's Been Digging In My Bed?

Who's been digging in my bed?

Who's been digging in my bed?

The other day I noticed that there was a long hole in the S bed today I discovered that the hole had been extended in a sort of tunnel coming down between the boulders in two different places definitely not Connie or Brady going to take a bit of work to reinstate the soil but need to deter whatever's trying to set up home behind the boulders.

geraldine could it be foxes? i read that they can dig places in gardens and make new lairs for their young, or a badger

Ooooh that's not looking good. You have to get to the root of the problem.

Hope you get to the bottom of it

Fox most likely.

Gearaldine, just giving an alternative view....

If it is foxes or another animal what about just letting them get on with it? Of course if they're doing a lot of damage, or if you've chickens or other animals that they might see as a tasty treat then that's a different matter! :)

These are massive boulders Don't think even Scrubber would be able to move them. I'm all for allowing wildlife to make their homes but not in my flowerbeds, think this is more than likely rabbits, unfortunately they are a real problem here, but they have all the ditches and hedges they needon the farm.  Conrad we have ducks on the pond and I know there are foxes etc about but so far so good they seem to have escaped being dinner.

I wouldn't be too keen on Rabbits in the garden, what with their potential for nibbling prized plants!

No Scrubber wasnt thinking of moving them but he was filled with a rock longing and thought that whatever beastie uncovered them that bit more, had taste and discernment!
