I am a mole and I live in a hole

We arrived at Site 1 yesterday afternoon to find a strange mound cutting diagonally across the main bed. We had been visited by a mole. On closer examination it didn't look as if it had surfaced anywhere so we can only assume it had been passing through.

Luckily it's path mostly went across an area where nothing has yet been planted although a couple of young cauliflower were damaged and one of the jerusalem artichoke was dislodged. We've taken the artichoke back home to nurse it hopefully back to full health in the greenhouse.
In the picture below you can clearly see the mole's route from bottom left, where it just bypassed the broccoli, up towards the artichoke.
