Q.digging holes in lawn

Zone London UK | Anonymous added on September 2, 2020 | Answered

Some animal is digging holes in my lawn. They do this at night or early morning. I have never seen the action taking place. I do have the odd grey squirrel visit the garden in the day time. I would be grateful for your advice.
