Web footed bird on sand, possibly Silver Gull.

The setting sun plays tricks with the mind in this pic as sometimes these footprints seem to be coming out
of the sand.

Thought these tracks were from a small mammal bounding through beach spinifex but what I thought were toes
may be hairy ghost crabs feet.

Love the CAT tracks, though not unique to a particular breed ;)

Newman, apart from being a post to a wrong thread Im assuming, the subscribe option can be found near the top of the page under thread tools.
I normally choose the weekly notification via email, but ymmv.

From earlier in the year:
Wombat foot prints and scat
P1270965 (Small).JPG P1270966 (Small).JPG P1270979 (Small).jpg

Rabbit (left) and fox (right) tracks. We followed these two set of prints for some time. We could see the rabbit moving slowly through the snow and finally “perching” on the rock (left of pic) for a few minutes.
The fox tracks were slow and steady behind him. Then the rabbit leapt from the rock and the fox ran after him, as evidenced by the deep rabbit prints and the greater spacing of the fox and rabbit tracks further along the trails. Unfortunately we don’t know how it all ended because the tracks headed into areas where we couldn’t follow.

Tracks can do more than just tell you what animals have past by, they can tell a story, sometimes a story of life and death.

Great track shots woods, auscraft and aussie. I love the sentiment there aussie that the track tell a story. Its really amazing what tracks can tell you about what has gone on. Its an area im very interested in but unfortunately lacking. What are you thinking for that third photo auscraft?

Id like to get better a reading tracks. Would love to get the experts read on them.

Here are my guesses, please correct me!:

1. Canine/fox?
2. Hooved animal? Bovine? Looks to wide to be a deer? Do idea really. They look to close to be a cow though now that I think about it.
3. Same as above, different medium
4. Roo?
5. Some kind of wading bird? Ibis maybe?
