Musings and photos of wild and everyday life

Fox News

The various bird nesting activities didn’t make me forget the foxes but they weren’t appearing.  So it was brilliant last week to see a pair of cubs playing in the back garden beside the seat, less than 20 metres away from the house windows.Fox Cub in back garden twilight

Behind these windows we had quickly gathered at first sight of these lovely animals behaving like young boys.  They play fought, jumped and chased, quite ignoring us and everything else.

The light was dimming fast and the twilight wasn’t what the camera was looking for but for once, seeing them and their seemingly contented, happy behaviour was nearly enough.

At one stage one of the youngsters approached from behind the bushes to about 2 or 3 metres from our bedroom window – a treat to see. 

We saw them a couple of times since but they haven’t been as active.

  2. How lovely Cliff! Nothing beats young cubs jumping & playing around – so cute!
    You’re lucky to have them visit your garden.
