Only slightly foxed

| May 14, 2010

The foxes have been less visible than usual over the last day or two (just as I announced this blog to the world, of course; timed for maximum awkwardness). Possibly they’ve just been put off by the chilly weather; maybe the cats are giving them some aggro; perhaps the cubs are getting to that awkward [...]

Pigeon-worrying, in motion

| May 13, 2010

Yesterday’s video includes some lovely footage of the Cub Versus Pigeon incident of which I posted pictures. The best part is that the pigeon is daft enough to come back for a second attempt at the food; I suppose (most) birds are not known for their intelligence…

Catch the pigeon, catch the pigeon

To my surprise, the cubs were on the early turn today; out and about in the garden around 9am, which is most unusual for them. There was a certain amount of rough and tumble, and then one of the cubs took it upon him or herself to stalk a pigeon, which was attempting to finish [...]

Videos, evening of May 11th

Strange sights

| May 11, 2010

I really hope that Foxcam has picked up the strange vision I saw about half an hour ago; a fox cub purposefully trotting back towards its den, carrying a slice of bread in its mouth. Mostly strange because the slice of bread was about the size of the cub’s head… Also, apparently slices of bread [...]

This morning’s video post

| May 11, 2010

Here’s this morning’s instalment of Foxcam videos; mostly they seem to have spent their night eating, although the last of the three videos also features the vixen being used as a speed-bump and then an adventure playground by her cubs…

Videos, 9th – 10th May

| May 10, 2010

The evening videos — in daylight, more or less — were definitely of more interest than the overnight videos from this morning’s haul. The cubs and their Mum had some dinner and then played a little bit. One of the local crows was rather vocal about wanting some of the food which had been put [...]

Videos 8th – 9th May

The cubs have still not learned that you Do Not Mess With Hedgehogs. I dare say they will figure it out sooner or later…

Not even the foxes like the rain

| May 8, 2010

Today was a damp and unpleasant day; we didn’t see the foxes in daylight at all, they only came out after dark…

Fox cub stuck in a watering can

The BBC have some pictures of a baby fox being rescued from a watering can. Luckily, not one of ours!
