We found these badger footprints leading across a patch of flooded field that was drying up. This wasn't on one of their regular paths but it was about 100m away from one of their latrines.
You can see both the pads and the claws.
The photos show clearly how when a badger walks there is an overlap of the back foot over the front foot.
This is a front paw, it has long claws.

This male pheasant was not disturbed by us walking and he even walked towards us.
Could these be more signs of a water vole?
