The fox cubs are growing up (slowly), and I’m beginning to get a pattern of behaviour. There’s one cub in particular (a male) who follows Wolfy around a lot. The others seem more reticent so although I know there are at least four cubs, as you can see here, generally there is only one or two in the garden at the same time.
There is one particular cub (a young male) who tends to be the boldest, and who follows Wolfy around a lot. Most of the recent photos are of him.
Wolfy, meanwhile is working very hard to look after her brood. Here she is eyeing up our hedge for nesting birds. She didn’t attempt to climb it (though foxes will climb trees if the incentive is sufficient).
There is a second adult fox, but he never shows himself when I’m there. The nearest encounter is this photo when he was watching carefully from below the fence line as I photographed the bold little cub. Wolfy was further in the garden, just out of shot.
Finally, another portrait of the little fox.
Camera note: all photos taken with the Canon 1DX Mark II. The night shots were with the EF 70-200mm f/4.0L IS II USM lens. I used the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM for the daytime shots.
