Doors are tricky things…

| January 13, 2019

One of our local foxes decided to come and investigate the house the other evening. Sitting on the back doorstep, they looked as though they were considering whether it would be warmer inside and possibly also have food — but the door was of course closed. One of our cats came over to investigate and [...]

Sunbathing

| February 7, 2018

Although it’s been quite chilly here the past few days, it has been sunny for much of the time. With the sun come the foxes — well, they come out from their dens, anyhow — and they seem to find the roof of our shed a good place to sunbathe. Possibly the tar-paper covering it [...]

The shed has its uses

| December 18, 2017

It is, by this point, a fairly old and knackered shed. (I won’t be surprised to find the foxes living in, rather than under, it one of these years.) But its tar-papered roof still provides a handy sun-trap and vantage point for the foxes at this time of year.

Just snoozing in the sun

After a bit of a trim…

| September 18, 2017

So we cut down some of the brambles and such in the garden — what do you mean, “I can’t tell the difference?” Hush, now. Anyway, that means we’ve been more easily able to see the local foxes taking in the sun, and so too have our cats. Neither side appears to mind much; as [...]

Sunning themselves

| March 26, 2017

Not sure if we have a breeding pair in our garden this year, but on a recent sunny day we were visited by two of the local crew, pottering around for food and enjoying the weather. The first of them (the first six photos) did also sit down for a while, but those photos didn’t [...]

This chap is evidently attractive to foxes

Stew, anyone?

| October 27, 2016

So we had some leftover stew that none of the humans wanted; we figured we’d see whether the local foxes fancied it. Oh yes. Definitely. The elapsed time from it being put out to the appearance of (one of) our friendly fox(es) was somewhat less than ten minutes. (The magpies turned up only a little [...]

The Return

| April 21, 2016

Why yes, it has been a while, hasn’t it? We don’t know whether we have foxes living in our garden at the moment, but we certainly have regular visitors; see below. (The first evening with decent light, the camera at hand, and a fox who decided to turn up in a while.) This one was [...]

Moving in and taking over

| September 13, 2015

Hi folks! Been a while, hasn’t it — the local foxes have not chosen our garden as their territory just lately, so we’ve not had any pretty pictures to share. But we do have some from a friend of the blog, Ms Vixen, who lives a couple of towns away; their local foxes have raised [...]
