Paw Marks in the Snow

Footsteps in the snow - the front paw of a beaver: 

A little snow fell in the early hours of the morning, leaving enough for a beaver to make clear marks.
The front paw marks are easily seen in these photographs, but the hind feet with their webs are not so obvious. 

Above the front foot in this photograph is a hind foot print.
The beaver whose tracks I have photographed does not seem to have been pulling a branch along behind it, otherwise the tracks would be less clear.

 This photograph of a feed cache was taken on the 4th December


I took this photo this morning. The beavers don't seem to have added anything to the cache since the day I took the preceding picture.
