URBAN FOX ENJOYING JUNE SUNSHINE, WEST LONDON


This fox in our garden this morning was lazily lying down, occasionally sleepily moving around and even yawning. Always wary, possibly aware of the human near the kitchen window, he kept a beady eye on the house. Even so, he lay for some time with his eyes near-closed, soaking up the June sunshine. Here are some photos of the visitor. You’ll see he is far from the manky scavenger that is the usual urban fox.  He is well-groomed and with a good coat. These photos were taken through glass – I didn’t want to risk disturbing the fox by opening a window for a clearer shot.

I’m terrible at keeping up with this blog. I’d take it down, but for the surprising number of people who turn up to view the contents – some themes are strangely popular. For which attention, much thanks. But I am going to try harder. I’m rejigging the format gradually, and will do some weeding, raking and transplanting. Let’s see how that goes…

  1. How wonderful! You have so many fascinating posts about foxes.
    Some nights now I have heard strange noises from the allotments across the road. It could be a fox barking, but also the Muntjacs sounds somewhat similar. We have many pheasant visiting our garden, a true joy. One in particular is quite shy, but when he sees me, he comes running towards me. Since yesterday he picks the food out of my hand. 🙂

    1. I suspect you have foxes! They are actually a pain – noisy at night, breaking fences by scrabbling up them, and leaving fox-gifts on the lawn. Pretty in the sun though. Well done for taming the pheasant- such lovely birds, especially males in the sun. Don’t mention casserole in its hearing, maybe!
