foxy update

CIMG8590copyThe allotment foxes look to be in good health this summer.

This guy appears youthful and was just chilling up on F’s plot last week by her spectacular Mullein plants.

He’s not our bare-tailed chap, who we’ve not seen about for a bit.

We’ve had a few visits in recent days, and we think we’ve found the site of a den just on the other side of the chain link fence separating the allotment plots from the railway line.

We imagine that the scar on the young fox cub’s face was caused by getting caught on the wire fence when scrambling to safety when a much smaller cub.  At least this wound looks like it’s healed well and is not sore or infected.  We’ll call this one ‘Scarface’!
