The past rain has certainly saturated the ground and large areas of water were still visible in the fields along the Stour valley and many molehills were observed along Magna road between Bear Cross and Merley. A quick stretch on the A31 revealed more mole activity, not only in the fields, but also in the roadside verges, a safe refuge for moles! The next part of the journey took us from Wimborne...

This can only lead to more properties...
