Things are still proving a bit hit and miss with the fox cubs. The erratic weather (windy) doesn’t help. Foxes hate the wind and get can become very skittish when it’s noisy. They rely on sound to a surprising extent. Pretty has been good though, and on Thursday night she brought four of the cubs into the garden.
One of the cubs took fright very quickly but two or three did stay around long enough for a few more photos. (Pretty sat down next to me while I took the photos!)
The numbers continued to dwindle, I suspect because there were more exciting adventures to be had the other side of the fence.
Those are with the camera, which is always something of an artificial situation (at least until they become sufficiently familiar with my presence to ignore it). The trail camera has a rather better time gathering images (but worse visual quality… something I hope to fix with an upgrade I’m picking up tomorrow). It did reveal on Friday night that rather than the five cubs I thought there were, there are in fact at least six.
