Raccoon tracks?

@Twelvebit: There are no raccoons living in Belgium (only at the zoo). These tracks are from Sciurius vulgaris - Red squirl. It was a common species in Belgium, but in recent years populations have drasticaly reduced. Typical here is that the prints of the "backfeet" are set before those of the "frontfeet".
