Footprints in the mud!

A couple of days ago I put the hosepipe on our stoned parking area with a view to cleaning it. It worked great but we did get a mud patch at the end where the stones meet the grass.

This morning we noticed these tracks...

Who knows what has been trampling on our mud?

A fox fancying a chicken dinner?

Looking at my tracks and signs guide I'd say marten or polecat. I'm tempted to go for polecat -- they are very splayed and pointy, and not so big.

I think it would have to be a very small fox, Jean! But I like your thinking!!

Thanks for the ID Susan. That would also explain the droppings we regularly find in the garden.

I'm with Susan - possibly beech marten?
