We are approaching the period when our fox cubs will start to disperse from their natal territory.  The cubs are five months old and are already the size of their mother, bigger in some cases.  It's hard to believe how quickly they have grown.

I had a fabulous 30 minutes sat on the edge of the field in plain sight of Malik while he foraged. I was sat on the ground hiding behind my camera on a low tripod. He was aware I was there, but clearly as I didn't reveal my silhouette he was happy to tolerate the stran...

Our wildlife is under a lot of pressure at the best of times but they really struggle during hot weather.  When there's so many people around they can be restricted from accessing water during day.  During the UK's recent record heatwave (July 2019) we've been providin...

I've put a huge amount of effort into my fox project over the last few years through observation, providing regular bait and maintenance of vegetation in the hope of seeing foxes with their cubs.  Each year I've tried to learn from previous failures.  This year by luck...

Given the number of nursing vixens in our local area I'd hoped to see fox cubs this year but didn't really think I'd see such young ones.  After initially catching a cub on the trail camera I was lucky enough to see two of them just a few days later.  The big surprise...
