As a mole, life can be hard and just like humans, if there is an easier way to do things, then this is the way forward! A mole will spend a lot of time feeding from the many mole runs that it constructs in a certain area, but sometimes a new feeding area will be established due to one or more factors In West Moors a mole has been happily feeding via its own tunnel network for a while, until disturbed by possible human or animal interference, the time has come to move areas and seek out new food sources.

If needed, a mole can excavate around eighteen to twenty metres of tunnels a day, depending on the soil! The word “mole” could be derived from the word “moldwarp” which literally means earth thrower!
