Size?

What sort of size are the prints? They are in rather wet snow, or melted, which makes id difficult without any indication of dimensions.

Hi, they were very small

Hi, they were very small almost fingerprint size for each part.
This was found on top of snow, on top of frozen puddle

Thanks

Footprint

The snow melt has removed any detail and there are clearly prints over prints so even the gait is obscured.

From your description of the size I would guess rat, but with the lack of detail could be stoat or weasel. Sorry I can not be any more confident in an ID.
