The young fox was here yesterday in daylight and again several times during the night there must be some attraction and most likely it is food.

The muggy warm weather came to an abrupt halt overnight with persistent rain falling at 6.30am this morning!
The wildlife here has become very apparent with all species being very busy feeding youngsters regardless of obvious dangers.
There was obviously a litter of fox cubs born locally as one of them took up residence in our ” 4 Dogs flat” (click on the image to full size it)

The fox escapes after I shut our three younger dogs up!!
