Hi Kissy

I assume you are tallking about the brown dug up areas, rather than the round thing?

I still wonder whether it’s badger digging for worms. You may not see claw marks – they may be pushing their noses in. It doesn’t look at all like moles to me, when you get a mound – and usually more than one. The soil from mole hills makes good potting compost, though!

I suggest you type animal damage to lawns into Google (or other) when it should show you some different images which you can compare the marks on your lawn with.
