How big is it Simon and are there any prints on top?
There may even be hair on the barbed wire
the holes about 8-10 inches across, i couldnt see any prints. its on an edge of woodland, with a grass field, with cattle in.
i didnt think badgers would as visable, and with the cows grazing with it to, hoping is more a fox, or even a rabbit
Might have been something digging something out.The possibilities are endless
If its a dog ,a fox or a brock I reckon you may find some trace hair on the wire.
Badger hole would be a D shape and a fox you would be able to smell put a couple of small twigs over hole to see if its being used
ok thanks, i will have a closer look, im kind of hoping its not badgers.
Sorry I can't be more help mate but it would be a lot easier to have an opinion if I could see the hole "in person".Mind you I could still be totally wrong !
Only just stopped chuckling at the thread title!!!
