    Thats very interesting. Exspeacialy that there are connections to foxes aswell.

    I'm not sure if I mentioned, we have foxes that regularly visit our garden, without any encouragement whatsoever.

    Earlier this year, we had siblings which have replaced  an aged fox, notable by the coat looking paler than the younger ones. Its been fascinating to watch them on the trailcam as they explored the garden and played. However, as they've grown up, only one is evident but we do have a new male, notable slightly different markings showing he's new and the way he wandered around the garden in a nosey manner rather than an established visitor, so perhaps, they're now a pair and the brother of the once young vixen has found himself a mate.

    Maybe.  I dont know for sure though

  • Recently I found out where the red foxes live go to or have been. It’s possible the red fox has come from a brook nearby. I went to the brook this afternoon and  I walked into a stranger who seen me obviously birdwatching with a pair of binoculars and my camara . It’s hard not to know I’m birdwatching. He says he walks his dog down there early in the morning and also in the evening. And he’s seen woodpeckers and seen 2 or 3 Kingfishers at the brook. but then he also said early in the morning he see lots of foxes there when he walks his dog and that his dog trys to go after them. He said theres about 3 or 4. He said they got a burrow there that they go in.  And that you  can just sit there and they will sit down or  do things  and just wonder around and things like that so that might be where there comeing from or going to when they walk  past the house
