A collection of foxes
With the temperatures hovering around freezing, it feels like winter has finally arrived. It’s certainly cold, but today the skies were clear and the winds low. I like winter days like this. I needed to take a rare trip over to Eastbourne, stopping briefly at Seven Sisters to see what birds were about. There were a few distant curlews, numerous little egrets, some swans and cormorants. Worth the early start.
Back home the foxes are still around. At least three of them are putting in an appearance on the trail camera (along with an occasional badger), though Pretty Vixen is the only one venturing out for photo shoots. She seems to be becoming a permanent fixture. It’s good that so many are still around and that bodes well for next spring.
Camera note: all bird photos taken with the Canon 7D and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens. Pretty Vixen taken with the EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM lens.
A short sequence taken yesterday of Pretty, the young vixen. The food in question is a ‘markie’ biscuit. She tends these days to take them away to cache, digging small holes in the borders (or occasionally the middle of the lawn). Last night though she tried some different. She climbed the garden hedge (about 5 feet high) and tried to cache up there.
Not the wisest place to hide something… but I doubt any of the other foxes will find it!
Camera note: all photos taken with the Canon 7D Mark II and EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM lens.
