Rabbit burrow?

This looks much too small for a rabbit, I would suggest a mouse or vole, you may have seen little piles of debris from seed husks etc just below the entrance to the holes.

You are probably right went back to see and was traces of acorns and stuff near by

Hole

Using the leaves for scale I think this is probably a wood mouse hole.
