Sometimes, you can also see what the animals were up to, if they were running or walking slowly, if they were looking for food or if they were unlucky and got eaten by a predator. If you find half-eaten vegetables on your allotment or in your garden the footprints will give away the culprit and if you have fenced in your vegetable patch now is the time to check if it is really rabbit-proof.

|A fox trail|
|A pigeon, probably looking for cabbages|
|A cat trail|
|A rat coming out of its burrow|

Have a look when you are out and about the next time, it will be nice to hear what animal trails you have discovered.
