One of our greatest concerns over the recent heatwave and drought, has been for wildlife.
We have put out bowls of water for the hedgehogs etc, seeds out for the birds, and even fed carrots to the horses. I suspect the animal world has suffered far more than we humans.
We had a small amount of rain recently, and I was pleased to see the above yesterday morning. The soil is obviously now moist enough for small rodents to dig, and find worms. I don't know what was responsible for this hole, probably either a mouse or a vole. I expect the poor creature was very happy to be able to dig again.
