Bank Holiday Fox Cub

The blazing sunshine over the Bank Holiday weekend was as welcome as it was unexpected (two hot Bank Holidays in a row is almost unheard of). I’ve not done much beyond pottering in the garden, but did enjoy numerous visits from one of the young fox cubs. I think he is male… and he has a distinctive blackish coat, reminiscent of the ‘Little Dog Fox’ from last year. These are a few photos taken over the weekend.

    “Feeling the heat” is absolutely the best 😀

    I agree.
    When it’s hot I feel like that fellow looks.

    Thanks! They’ve gone a bit shy again since these. We need some more good weather to encourage them out.
