It was a bright but chilly day today and I needed some fresh air so went out and raked up some leaves...harder work than last year or just me getting older lol...Took a break about 1.30 and decided to have lunch in the garden, hot cuppa ,sandwich and camera (just incase the Kestral popped by). It was nice sitting there eating and watch the birdies coming and going then all of a sudden I could hear lots of noise behind the summerhouse then out pops......
I see you and you see me...I thought it would have turned and scarpered but no..I think it could smell my bacon sandwich...no chance was I sharing!
Then it comes out from behind the net and Omg the poor thing was limping terribly....
I didnt dare move and it didnt seem bothered by me sitting there
scent marking everything in its way
It even came closer as I was snapping away
And over a pile of leaves
Poor thing spent a few minutes drinking from the pond
Then it hobbled off again
And then I ate my freezing cold sandwich ...
Poor foxy...a will leave a wee treat out for it tonight

What, you didn't share your bacon sarnie - how could you not .!!!
What a great encounter. He/she looks healthy apart from the limp. Cracking set of photos. I'm sure it will appreciate some food you put out tonight.

In reply to Alan.:
Thanks Alan...Oh I hope it does heal as it does look healthy enough. My foxes usually get chicken breast....I have left eggs out before but they lay for days so I just binned them
