Foxes galore

After not having seen any foxes for a while, I have seen 3 foxes in the last two days - one crossing the field behind our house in full sunshine at 5:30 pm, one at a similar time of day on the coast path below Waterston and one freshly dead by the road near Blackbridge. I don't know much about the timing of fox breeding but these all looked like rather scruffy females who were out and about as they were desperate for something to eat having been stuck in the den feeding hungry cubs. I see Derek also saw one in daylight eyeing the Glossy Ibises at Marloes Mere yesterday.
