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.

Fox Playtime

This is a short extract of a much longer sequence I took of Pretty (the 15-month old vixen) playing with Wolfie (3-4 months old), yesterday in the late sunshine. They were play-fighting for a long while, part of a young fox’s education.
