Cowart's Common Room
Didn't get to Church thismorning

This is why I did not set out along narrow road, that go up and down and round lots of corners. 1/4 hour in good weather.

I have a puzzle. What has left this track? The paw marks are tiny and about 2 inches apart. Similar to a cat but minute in comparison. Any suggestions?

Could be a stoat.

Re:
Withy Brook's Avatar I think I meant stoat, WW. I know there are some about. They are soooo tiny though.
this snow fell over-night, when we thought we were clear. It has been very slowly thawing all day.

Fennie's Avatar It's a Woozle...or maybe a Woozle and a Wizzle. If you keep watching the number of tracks will multiply.

TIGGYWINKLE's Avatar What a beautiful snow scene Withy. I'm not surprised you did not venture out. We haven't had snow like that in Ireland since 1982. Keep nice and snug.

CalicoKate's Avatar Lovely pictures Withy. I wish that my walk to church yesterday morning had been so pretty!

(Think stoat would be too small to make those tracks they hardly make any prints so small and light are they. Weasel or squirrel would be my bet or a kitten!)

Re:
Withy Brook's Avatar Certainly hadn't thought of a kitten! I have not seen any more, just cat and fox.
