Thats a good practice Hen-Gen, and if Sea Eagles come back to your part of the world .....
I assume the rats on the adjacent islands came from ships, so strange you don't have any, but if they are the preferred food of trolls that would explain the lack of!

Curious no rats because they are present on the larger adjacent islands. Some say that the trolls eat them all!
They've got that wrong Hen-Gen. The dwarves eat rats and the gargoyles eat pigeons. The trolls discovered that they couldn't digest the soggy stuff and prefer something like anthracite! (And the world is supported on four giant elephants standing on Great A'Tuin who is swimming through space)

Ah, ye of little faith :D . I only started reading this thread because I thought it might be something gratuitously smutty.
But seriously I do sometimes wonder bout the beliefs across Northern Europe. Trolls, leprechauns, elves, pixies etc. A bit like a belief in God, I prefer not to test providence ;)

Maybe the rats get carried away in a little suitcase with feet. Sapient pearwood, I seem to recall?

It's the Discworld books by Terry Pratchett. Comic fantasy, inspired by the absurdities of real life. I commend them to you! Start with "The colour of magic"...
