Tasty patio…

| July 31, 2010

Photos from June 17th, here. Mostly the fox family were relaxing on the lawn, but I am really not sure quite what one of the cubs was licking up from the patio in the last few — and no, this is not related to the furry clean-up squad incident on which I reported earlier on […]

A couple of quickies

| July 30, 2010

1) I see there has been another report in the media about someone being attacked by a fox. I’m sure it’s deeply unpleasant for the person concerned, but I also don’t believe that all the foxes in the UK have unilaterally decided that 2010 is going to be The Year They Bite People. I’m currently […]

The World Cup must have been on…

| July 27, 2010

Yes, we really ARE over a month behind with the photo posts. Don’t even ask about Foxcam. I think the number of photos I can get is likely to start going down a bit; we’re not seeing the cubs quite as often and the evenings are of course getting a little shorter. I imagine the […]

An intimate dinner for two

| July 24, 2010

A couple of evenings ago I put out the food for the foxes as usual, although the mix was slightly different; peanuts and cheese, as usual, but also a half-pack of crispy bacon that had gone past its best-before date. I had forgotten just how much Lardy Cat likes crispy bacon. Enough, it transpires, to […]

Profile of a fox

| July 22, 2010

Just a quick post for you this evening – some photos from June 11th when one of the cubs wanted his or her full share of the limelight… Click on any photo to see a larger version, you know the drill by now.

“Both In It Together”

| July 20, 2010

My father — from whom we bought this house, and who is therefore the one to blame for the foxes’ den in the first place — has today sent me a copy of Both In It Together – A Farmer’s Life With Foxes written by John Carter. It is a rather sweet little book, written […]

Life’s a riot with fox vs magpie

| July 16, 2010

I wish I had some video of this particular interaction to share with you, but unfortunately not, you’ll have to picture it for yourselves… In the garden, on the lawn: one of the fox cubs. (This particular cub seems to have taken to hanging out in the main visible bit of the garden during the […]

Study of a fox

| July 15, 2010

Today’s photos are from June 9th. Then, as most usually today, one of the cubs was the first one out to check out the food that I’d left out; it’s not always the same cub, mind you. I think they have some kind of rota system organised from behind the bushes; I wonder if they’re […]

On a summer’s evening

| July 14, 2010

A few more photos from the archives for you, today; these are from June 3rd. It was a lovely evening here at Fox Towers, and the vulpine members of the community certainly seemed to be making the most of it.

Communication with foxes
