Along the footpath between two open fields, the wind had swept the snow up against the brambles causing natural sculptures like waves breaking on the shore.
Rabbits determined not to let the snow disturb their daily life, climbed, slid down and fought their way to and from their burrows. Fresh tracks in and muddy tracks out showed the warmth and dryness of their chambers underneath the ground.
Larger mammals such as deers, badgers and foxes left their trails, giving a brief indication of their night time activities.
As I sit and write this, the snow is nearly all gone, the sun is shining and I’m glad for the animals that Spring could now finally be on its way.
