Mole Catching

While doing the Kimmer Lough NEBS visit on Tuesday morning I had a brief chat with a chap who was driving a landrover around, slowly, in the Bannamoor fields on the north side of the site.

He'd seen that I was bird watching and wanted to let me know that he was about to start his mole catching. The reason this was relevant was that his method involves waiting in an area of mole hills until he spots slight movements of soil and then blasting the spot with a shotgun!  He reckoned he'd got 36 moles last year using this technique.
