Lads I found these tracks in the mud by my duck shed...The ducks were locked in for the night..

Are they cat or fox???? there are cats next door..But there is also foxes around..


Im thinking cat as I cant see any sign of claws..

I'd go with cat too. The fox has a 'thinner' print, the two outer toes are more behind the centre two. With the cat the toes are 'side by side'! Dave
