Foxes are out and about

6 Apr

Over the past few days I have seen foxes out and about both at night ( as you would expect) and during the daytime.

The fox attracts fierce argument from both camps – Fox Hunters and their opponents. It may surprise you to know that the fox is the most widespread carnivore cross the entire northern hemisphere from the Arctic Circle to North AfricaCentral America and Asia. Its range has increased alongside human expansion, having been introduced to Australia, where is has caused lots of damage to the native wildlife.

They mated around Christmas  and their litters are being born around now so if you are careful you may see young ones in a few weeks.
