What to do with your food — when you find it

| December 25, 2010

Good morning, folks! Merry Christmas from all at Fox Towers. Since you’ve not had much video from me just lately (short days, bad light), a little Christmas present; I spotted Ears hunting in the snow on Monday. Problem was, when she found her food, she couldn’t decide whether to eat it or play with it…

Two lonely souls…

| December 24, 2010

Picture the scene. Foxy Lady and Mr Fox are sitting at the table, eating their dinner, when Ears potters along the patio and sits down outside the patio doors, looking hopeful. (She does this quite often, and occasionally it’ll work and she’ll get some food thrown out onto the patio for her.) Our lardier cat [...]

Foxes eat too much junk food

| December 18, 2010

With a hat tip to @jamesgraham on Twitter, foxes are now apparently eating too much junk food…

More adoptable foxes…

| December 14, 2010

Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue, who are based in Camberley in Surrey, have let me know that they too have adoptable foxes available. I’ve added them to the list…

A furry gift for the festive season

| December 13, 2010

We are moving in to what is, in some circles, known as the Primary Gifting Period (according to Bill Bailey, anyway). If you’re me, that means a reasonable amount of time racking your brains as to what to buy the person who seems to have everything — or, worse, the person who says “Oh, I [...]

Fox in the snow, the tail end

| December 12, 2010

This is the last of the set of photos from Friday 3rd. As I originally mentioned, this started out as six hundred and twenty-three photos… trimming them down to seventy took a little while! If you are on the Fox Towers’ Christmas card list, you may consider some of these a sneak preview As ever, [...]

Fox and snow, part 2

| December 11, 2010

Here is part 2 of the set of photos of Paletail enjoying the snow on Friday 3rd. Well, in fairness he was probably enjoying the chicken rather more than the snow! The first part of the set is here. Enjoy the photos, and please do feel free to pass the link around to other people [...]

The fox and the snow

| December 10, 2010

“Who lives in a garden like this?” Like most of the rest of the UK, Fox Towers’ neck of the woods has had snow — quite a bit of snow last week, actually. It seemed like a perfect opportunity to take some lovely photos of our local foxes against a nice white background, but were [...]

A different type of urban animal

| December 8, 2010

OK, and people are worried about foxes? In Chicago, they have coyotes… http://www.npr.org/blogs/krulwich/2010/12/08/131876027/60-wild-coyotes-patrol-chicago-and-occasionally-stop-at-convenience-stores

Snowy foxes, coming soon…

| December 6, 2010

I mentioned on Twitter on Friday that one of our foxes (PaleTail) had finally come out in daylight so that I could get some decent fox-in-the-snow pictures. I’m just going through the pics now. There are, er, six hundred and twenty-three of them. May take me another day or so, sorry folks I do note, [...]
