Is it possible to ID these tracks, presumably made by mice or voles? Snow soft and powdery so can't see the pads.

Interesting. Are there many

Interesting. Are there many of these rats around in general woodland? There are a number of pheasant rearing pens in this area so possibly this has attracted them.

Rat

These are rat, if only because the distance between each print is so large. Rats are everywhere, especially in a pheasant rearing wood.
