I WAITED


Well, I waited with my camera for a long time last night but there was no fox cub.
If Tom had not been with me the night before I would think that maybe I was seeing things, but he really was there.
However, I did get some shots of the 'collector fox' taking nouths full of food to and fro to the den.


At one point he heard me near the door and looked up, such a lovley face, and in the last shot there's not a lot of food left.
I soaked small squares of bread in egg and they seem to like that.
Not very good pics but the best I can get at night through the glass.

Then this morning as I sat in my work room (box room, lol) I looked out and there were the two gulls that we feed on next doors roof looking in at me.


No matter what room of the house we are in they seem to spot us through the windows. lol
So of I went like a good little lady and put their biscuits out on the wall.


I love the noises they make, lots of different sounds as though they are talking and saying thankyou.
Or am I just a nutty old lady? lol

  1. Too bad no cub, but you got some nice pictures of the adult. That's funny that the gulls find you through the windows. Guess word is out that you serve the best biscuits :)

  2. Great picture, my mother in law used to have a huge dog fox come into her garden to feed. He became very tame and would almost pose for the camera.

  4. Lovely pictures. I feed the foxes and several years ago a vixen used to bring her cub into
    the garden to feed it, I was thrilled. I have two crows who look through the lounge window
    when they want feeding. I think you get such rewards looking after the wildlife. SueM

    1. Hello SueM, I can't find a blog for you but thankyou for commenting. I'm always a little bit wary posting on foxes and seagulls as some people think of them as vermin. I personally love all wild life and love to see them close up.

    2. YesI love all wildlife too but I have to be very careful where I live (surrey) because so many people are anti foxes in particular so I am discreet!! I don't have a blog but found you through Meanqueen. SueM

  7. I loved the four fox pictures and that you feed the foxes. Are you a nutty old lady? No way! You're a fruitcake!

  8. I'm pleased that you was able to catch the adult fox. Hes is very handsome. I feed the wild life too, it is an enjoyable moment to see them eating. We used to feed the raccoon and she brought her young with her. She would eat out of the same pan as an ugly possum until she started bringing the babies.
    Then I had to feed them separately. Eventually the young one started getting after our chickens in the coup so we had to stop feeding all together. Silly really, they still come looking for food. But not as often and not seeing the young ones anymore.

  10. I love to hear of kindness and this certainly qualifies in my book - nothing nutty about it.

    Great pictures of all the wildlife! Love the gulls' feet :)

  11. Well if your a nutty old lady,well i am one too,lol.I love feeding the wildlife where I live...The fields that used to be at the top of my road,have now been made into Houses for Sale...it will be ongoing for the next 3 to 4 years.Every bit of Green belt as we call it..has houses being built on it now in Leicester.The wildlife there has to go somewhere.....and there is no where else for them to go!!.So,i put out every scrap of food i have left over and it is all cleared by the morning.xx

    1. Hi debi, this is what a lot of people do not understand. These creatures have had their natural habitat taken from them. Like you we have a very large piece of land nearby that must house loads of wild life, it has been empty for years and now they are going to bull doze it and build there. I despair sometimes at what will happen in the future for these wild creatures.

  12. I love your foxes and I think birds are fascinated with us as much as we are with them it's like we are there zoo trip. Those little hummingbirds and wrens are very nosey they follow you from room to room too or at least where we live.

  13. I enjoy feeding the birds, but don't put up nesting boxes because Humphrey is a good hunter. The starlings come in looking now every morning for meal worms. The cub is so sweet!

  14. Awwww, they look very grateful for your help! I used to always leave out old food for my fox, he'd eat them! I miss them in my new garden- it's harder for them to get through than through our side gate at my old house! I saw your comment above about lost habitat which is so very true!
