The red fox

I haven’t seen many foxes in the wild. The closest I seemed to get most of the time was my old Labrador who always took a fancy to rolling in fox poop (never a nice drive home with that smell in the car!).

A Red Fox made an appearance once when I was walking along the local river. I looked up at the opposite river bank, and there was one trotting along the grass, before disappearing from view. My first wild sighting.

The only other sighting I’ve had was when carrying out nest watching duties for a pair of White-tailed Eagles. I was sat in a pop-up hide in a forest, with a trail several metres away in front. I caught sight of a fox walking along the trail. Best sighting ever. It stopped and sniffed about and went on its way.

I’m sure that was also the time an angry little Red Squirrel was squeaking up a tree nearby!
