Clocks

| October 31, 2010

When I wandered downstairs this evening around sixish to prepare food for my cats and also for the foxes, both groups were looking a little impatient; the cats attempting to get under my feet, and two of the foxes waiting on the lawn. I fear that their internal clocks suggested that they should have had [...]

Foxes are silly creatures sometimes…

| October 29, 2010

A few weeks ago I was keeping an eye on one of the local foxes as he appeared to be limping. However, the limp didn’t appear to be stopping him practising his pouncing on (the remains of) one of the toys they had brought into the garden…

Interloper

| October 23, 2010

The nights are drawing in, the temperature is dropping, and that makes a more-or-less-regular food source look more attractive to foxes… even those foxes who are new to the area. I looked out of the window one afternoon a week or so back and saw this: Yes, okay, a fox on the lawn, not all [...]

Jam tomorrow…

| October 5, 2010

I’ve never had (or wanted) to feed my foxes jam sandwiches, but apparently it is a well-known way of getting them to take a mange remedy, should one be needed. When our locals were younger, they seemed quite happy to eat bread — there are videos of ours on YouTube hunting down and making off [...]

Dinnertime for the fox

| October 4, 2010

As I mentioned, the weather finally improved enough yesterday that I could take some more video of one of the foxes in daylight. Took a while to upload, as it’s almost seven minutes long, but here — enjoy

Countryfile

| October 3, 2010

Well, that was all right, wasn’t it? … wasn’t it? I think I came off significantly better than Steve the fox-exterminator who did not wish to have his face on camera, and the footage they had from me of the fox in my garden looked good. I’ve been trying to get some more video footage [...]

You are all going to watch Countryfile later, aren’t you? Jolly good.

Foxes don’t like rain

| October 3, 2010

All of the Foxcam footage over the last couple of days seems to have involved very damp foxes. I don’t think they like the rain, and they definitely don’t seem to want to come out in daylight when it’s raining! Unfortunately the fox who rather elegantly shook itself on camera did so right at the [...]

A little more Foxcam

| October 1, 2010

I was really hoping to get some more HD video footage of the foxes to show you, for reasons which will become apparent in a couple of days’ time, but the weather — and indeed the foxes — really haven’t been cooperating. Yesterday was sunny but the foxes didn’t want to show their faces in [...]
