It's likely to be fox but have you got any scale? if small it could be stoat or weasel. There is fur in it so obviously a carnivore.

Sorry, no scale info as such.

Sorry, no scale info as such. It is on some young heather. Would say too large for stoat/weasel. More comparable with cat in terms of size.

Was out looking mainly at invertebrates and plants and chance of adder.
