During the winter months is can be harder to spot animals in the wild - many are hibernating, and those that don't hibernate like Squirrels, Rabbits and Hares will be keeping warm and only venturing out occasionally. Snow and heavy frost however offer a great opportunity to see where they have been, and it can be great fun to take the family out on a cold morning to see how many different types of animal tracks you can find and identify.

Here are a few examples...
