a mouse keeps nibbling the courgettes and they aren't that great,

Something, probably a mouse or vole has taken out all of my courgettes and hollowed the stems.

Sure it's not squirrels? I used to have a problem with them attacking my courgettes. Part of the reason why I hate the buggers!

It could be the woodland across the road is fairly well stocked with them. They must do it when the dogs aren't about.

They're early morning operatives. I never caught them at it. Though when they got caught in the Fenn trap it was always early mornings.

I tried the rat trap with peanut butter on a bit of crust and it disappeared without setting the trap off so reckon the resident mouse has been nibbling - we see it out in the garden regularly so know we have one but also have a lot of squirrels.
