Fox

For some time now my parents have spotted foxes in their suburban garden, and so while I'm staying with them I've been putting food out to try to see them for myself. Sure enough, we have what appears to be a breeding pair venturing in at around the same time every night, just as it's getting dark. There definitely seems to be a male and female, often coming into the garden separately but also occasionally at the same time. However, we haven't seen any young yet, which may be due to the trickiness of getting through our fence (the hole is quite high up).

These foxes have been seen jumping from a standing start up on to an ivy-covered chickenwire fence, and balancing on the top before jumping down. One of them also appears to sleep on the roof of our shed when the weather's sunny, which would require some ivy-climbing prowess.

Pictures taken just behind the Carlton Road Library in Nottingham. The light was lousy - it had snowed a few days before and was threatening to again - but although dark the images seem to have come out quite well.

Back in Nottingham for Christmas, a walk around the Lace Market before the tram works started, then down to the Council House to look at the Christmas market.  Finally a quick side trip to the railway station down to the canal.
