Mrs Fox poses

| May 26, 2011

Cute (or deranged) though the cubs are in this set of pictures — from April 30th — I think my favourite is the shot of Mrs Fox, the last of the set. She’d come up to lie in the grass (… and the weeds, yes, okay…) near the edge of the patio, which meant she […]

Of tongues and magpies

| May 25, 2011

April 29th was an especially good day for pictures of fox tongues, it turned out. Baby foxes, mother foxes… sometimes both at once. Also, one of the cubs was practising his stalking skills on one of the local magpies — unsuccessfully, but then they usually are.

True colours

| May 24, 2011

As you may recall, the cubs start off with comparatively dark fur — almost black, or dark grey at least. They were definitely on the grey side when they first came out into the open. But by the end of April — these photos were taken on the 27th — they were beginning to lose […]

Their daily bread

| May 24, 2011

Here are some photos from 26th April — mostly involving what happens if the cubs have a chance to investigate some bread… (Bread on its own isn’t that great for young animals, but this was put out for the birds alongside the standard fox food. The cubs spent most of their time playing with it […]

| May 20, 2011

When they were smaller…

Start your weekend with a dose of cute! Here are some photos of the cubs from just short of a month ago – April 23rd.

And finally…

… for today, at least; have some lovely HD video of wrestling fox-cubs. Short but sweet!

More compilations

| May 16, 2011

Have some more montages! These are from April 30th through to May 2nd.

Don’t eat my ear. I really mean it.

Any of you who have been reading this blog for a while — or probably any time longer than a day or two — may have formed the idea that fox cubs are naturally boisterous. Well, yes. If you’re a vixen with cubs, you’ll very soon get used to being climbed on, played on, played […]
