Uptown Fox

Painting by Robert E Fuller

I had a call yesterday from Peter Levy of Radio Humberside wanting to know all about urban foxes after that photograph of a fox walking up an escalator in a London Underground Station appeared in all the papers.
Thinking of town foxes brought me in mind of a week I spent cramped in a child's Wendy house in Huntingdon watching a vixen and her cubs. Click here for more on that experience.

This is the time of year to be listening out for fox calls as they begin their courting season. These animals really are among the most adaptable of all our species and the jokes in the newspapers yesterday on that savvy fox's London 'knowledge' aren't that far off the mark.

To learn more about town foxes click here link to Peter Levy's BBC Radio Humberside programme.

And for more 'foxy tales' click here to link to a Gazette & Herald column of mine.
