Tracking


The lovely thing about a light smattering of snow is the glimpse that it offers of the wildlife around. This morning we woke to the sight of two foxes running across the near-white field, we suspected they were around - the smell and their eerie cries - but we rarely see them.

Yesterday we walked the lanes and tracks around the village in search of evidence.


Pheasant  and rabbit prints


 Badger scrapes?


A veritable highway of little paw prints running across  a farm track from a small burrow (top) to the opposite verge (bottom)


  where we found a well gnawed beet!

mini roundabout
 hares!

  

salamanders!
