What a summer! The weather has been very hot to say the least and many people have enjoyed the sun and reaped its benefits. Nature has had to adapt to the very dry conditions to preserve valuable moisture, none more so than the mole. A very hard-working animal that few have ever seen, but its results are everywhere – MOLEHILLS! As the ground dried out, these industrious creatures were forced to new areas to feed on their primary source of food, worms.

Agriculture has always played a large part as well. Being a larger town often attracts animals, insects and birds and this is certainly the case in Verwood due to its rural...

Take a walk in any area where there are trees and you are sure to spot a grey squirrel. They may look cute as they forage for food, or sit in a tree chewing an acorn, or devouring a tasty morsel stolen from a bird feeder or bin. Do not be fooled! Squirrels are definitely cunning and will use any means possible to search out suitable food sources and nesting sites. Curiosity plays a part, along with determination and of course their strong teeth inherited from the rodent family, which can quickly penetrate most materials. Wheelie bins are no match for constant gnawing and if any food waste is...
