Mr Fox caught on camera

For the last few days the wildlife camera has been positioned on the trunk of a tree about 20 meteres from the house with some ferret food scattered below it to tempt Mr Fox into view.

Getting up each morning to see what has been caught on the camera is super exciting. Here are some of the best pictures from the last few days:

Even though this is probably the dog fox who attempted to kill a hen less than two weeks ago, I still feel privileged to have this beautiful wild animal so close to where I am. The time stamps on the images shows he has visited as early as 5.20pm and spent quite some time eating food by the camera at 10.00pm when we will have been sat just meters away in the house.

After charging the batteries I’ll set the camera lower down on a tree and place food right in front of it to hopefully catch some close up photos of the fox’s face.

  • Oh how fantastic! you lucky thing 🙂 Whilst it is sad that they try to kill hens (they do need to eat after all) it truly is a privilege to have these beautiful creatures so close to your home 🙂

  • That camera has picked up some great shots!

  • Those are brilliant shots! I'm sorry to hear about the hen, though. Fingers crossed they don't have another run in and you can carry on enjoying watching the fox!

  • Everything does need to eat but I don't like seeing some aspects of it!

    The birdcam would be great to observe my family of robins close up.
