The normal cause of soil being pushed to the surface is earthworm activity but on this occasion, it could be a sign of tawny mining bee activity. They are mainly distributed throughout southern and central Britain, and are active between April and September. Keep your eyes peeled for them as they are fairly easily recognised with their bright orange fur!
