Photo article - I've never seen this beastie in the wild before today

Today, I went on my latest training walk ahead of the 33 mile Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks Trek in May. BTW, if you have not yet sponsored me do so HERE. Anyhow, on today's 19 miler I was at about the five mile mark passing under the road bridge over the Avon just shy of Hanham Weir, when I spotted a small furry creature by the path.

It was desperately trying to dig a hole in the earth. I do not know if it succeeded because as it dug I had to head up the path to ask some walkers who were heading towards the bridge if they would put their dog on a leash to save the mole. Until this day I have never seen a mole in the wild before. One more thing off my bucket list I guess.
