This little rodent had burrowed into a pot and ran out when I dumped out the soil. Seemed stunned or maybe had started hybernating. Considered squishing it but not really sure if it is harmful to a garden. The fox may find it tonight anyway.

I think these are rat tracks about 30 meters from the river near where I parked. There were lots of crickets around. I thought possibly frog but the digit pattern not like the frog/toad tracks I have seen. Lots of tracks here, I guess there could be a few. It was grass around this patch of mud.
