Sweltering Foxes

As the heat continues unabated the foxes are trying to do as little as possible during the day. Here’s a selection of photos of Scamp (4-5 months old) and Pretty (16-17 months old) out in the garden today.

Scamp, the young vixen

Of the several cubs that we’ve had visiting this, Scamp (a young vixen) is proving to be the most persistent. She happily comes out in the day and this afternoon enjoyed herself watching me tidying up a corner of the garden. Here are a few shots of her relaxing while I was hard at work filling garden sacks with beech cuttings.
