I'm no particular fan of foxes. I think of them as mangy, smelly, filthy, noisy, damaging wild dogs, in the main.
I know I've had a particularly good day, like I did yesterday (I played some absolutely sublime golf at a local course in the afternoon for example; and had a nice few relaxing beers afterwards) when even I look at some of the footage I shot of the garden last night (see short video below) and think to myself... "Awww... those wittle foxes look soooo cute!"
NB. This is just a tiny part of the footage I recorded last night with the rather good (WAAAAY better than Bushnell) Browning trail camera.
We have three cubs and two adult foxes visit our garden during the nights right now, but if I'd have uploaded all the footage from last night, the clip above would have been about 30 minutes long, rather than 1 minute.
Whilst we currently don't keep hens (we'll start again before too long I'm sure) I'll put up with foxes - as long as they don't start eating the hedgehogs!
Enjoy your Bank Holiday Monday, grapple fans...
