I did wonder if 6 was "lodger" even before the "e" appeared; obviously an anagram of dogrel (I had not seen this spelling before but it's OK - of course!), and I suppose a lodger is sort of exotic!
Another two bite the dust ! Well done, again. :-)
7. Digger finds old pound in river (8) : FOLLOWER
- From O and L just as you say, inside FLOW--ER, a thing which flows.
- I had just taken it from "Dig that music" etc. i.e. one who appreciates it = a follower.
6. Digger finds exotic example of dogrel (6) : LODGER - which is an anagram (exotic example) of D-O-G-R-E-L
- My Collins English Dictionary, reproduced in http://www.thefreedictionary.com
has Item 10. -
- to dig : to have lodgings, "I dig in South London".
- so, if "I dig", then I must be a "digger".
- Only three to go.
