Un welcome Pest

They appeared in our garden several months ago.  Mole hills.
At first I just flattened them and spread the earth thinly over the ground. Just one or two in the flower bed.  Then they were in the lawn!  The ground became soft with tunnels below the surface.  Having spent many an hour digging out the weeds and reseeding patches it is sad to see the state of  the lawn now.

A mole catcher has set a few traps.  He said there could be only one mole in our garden.  It is surprising how such a little molie can do so much damage!  It may take a week to catch the little beast.
