Footprints in the hoar and snow

Footprints in the snow

Badger and magpie footprints in the snow

The footprints of a badger and a bird in the recent deep hoar frost. The bird was probably a magpie.

Badger footprints

Another (overlapping) pair of badger prints taken on the same day.

Badger footprint

A badger print from a few days previously, this time in snow. This print is much more indistinct that the ones above.

Pheasant footprints

These bird footprints, with my oversized heel as a size comparison, are from a pheasant.

Fox footprints

Fox prints in snow. It’s a disconcerting characteristic of fox footprints that they all line up pretty much in one straight line.
