what size is the hole and I presume the mound is old grass cuttings size would determine if it was mouse or rat.

area

I would say it is rats,the grass cuttings will be giving them cover and heat as they warm up when decomposing I would clear the cuttings away and clear the area and it should stop the rat's plus put food in feeder's as that should help too.
