Digging for Grubs (fox video)

This is a rare event. I mentioned yesterday that I might edit some video and I’ve actually done what I said I’d do!

Pretty was enjoying being left alone in the garden, and when she thought we weren’t watching got down to the serious business of hunting grubs. Grubs are a regular food source for foxes (chafer grubs are a favourite), but getting them means digging them out from under the grass. This does remove a nasty garden pest from the lawn, but probably isn’t ideal if you like your garden to be bowling-green smooth. 😉
