Well, we're back home and I'm watching the rain lashing against the window as I write....!!

I thought I'd share one more animal memory of our last few weeks in France. I came across this lively little mole early one morning a few days ago on my way to the bridge at Beaumont to pick up the Trailcam. It looks quite small next to my size 11s! I was trying to stop it crossing the road and getting squished by a lorry, but it was determined to go as you can see from the video:

Home was obviously in the verge on the other side of the road. The fact that moles regularly turn up in Owl pellets & outside Fox dens seems to suggest that they're around on the surface more than we probably realise, but I feel it's a real privilege to catch up with one, especially during the day!

  1. How lovely, that is a sight that I have never seen before. Loved the way its feet went so fast.
