Anyone know what animal could be doing this?

I've recently moved into a house (I live in the uk) and noticed a hole in the bottom of the garden fence leading underneath next doors decking. A few days later the hole was blocked off with stones, they had been pushed out from under the fence as tho something has blocked it off from the other side, a few days later the stones were completely gone! Every few days they are back again then a few days later gone again, so whatever is in there is pushing the stones back under when it leaves the hole! Does anyone have any idea what it could be? My first thought was a rat but I haven't heard of rats doing this? Tia

Could it be a vole or a mole? We have voles in our yard that burrow under the ground and come up through another hole, leaving big mounds of dirt all over. There are no stones involved though, only grass and dirt.
