Fox Cubs

The eye may be drawn to bottom left, but look at top right…

Couldn’t resist including this picture which came up on my trail camera when it was set on the moss behind our new house. A litter of cubs has been doing well over the past few weeks and can often be heard fighting and playing in the gloaming – these cubs are not on my ground and I can’t lift a finger against them, but it has been interesting to see them grow and prosper. Watching and listening has provided me with some useful lessons which will come in handy further down the line.

While I search for a silver lining in the prosperity of these predators, it must be said that the presence  of these cubs is almost certainly the driving force behind the failure of breeding waders on the moss this year.
