"The mole is thought to be one of the most common mammals here in the UK, however there is very little basic information about them and their numbers. With continuing changes to our countryside it is important to monitor species that can be affected by farming methods and the fragmentation of their habitat, before something happens and it is too late to help. Currently there is no detailed map for moles in the UK, so we have decided to carry out MoleWatch, to find out more about these secretive creatures"

currently 27,040 moles and counting...

"A group of moles is called a labour."
