That definitely sounds like rabbits to me. I would go looking for their point of origin myself. They will be digging under any fencing from somewhere. You would need to bury rabbit proof fencing to at least a foot below ground level to stop them digging under and even then................
Our rabbit hunting cats got the ones which visited us!

I did think it might be rabbits but I have rabbit fenced around the vegeatable plot to keep them out and also our dogs. I cannot find anything entrance point except for a mole hill. I also have a row of winter lettuce that has not been touched

Rabbits don't actually eat lettuce, despite the cartoons. The juice causes them terrible problems.
Still think that they are to blame. The one we had in the garden was only discovered when one of our cats disturbed it and chased it past us. Even then I had to virtually remove all the Heather bed to find its warren (well the beginning of one).

Bonnies Plants should know all about voles. Read the following link. And besides, this thread is almost 6 years old.
