Some of my readers will know that I have been befriending a little fox vixen for over a year now.
She lives in a very rural area, surrounded by farmland and ancient woodland. I was so pleased to see that she had survived another year, when I saw her this spring. I have taken many photos over the last year, mainly because she is so bold and will sit around outside the cottage, waiting til you come out to her. So I've included a few more pics for you to enjoy.
On a more serious note, in the UK, fox hunting has been banned. However, there are plans to repeal the ban. If you would like to sign the petition against the repeal, visit the campaign for decency. I would warn you, there are a few unsettling images further down their page.
