More about the marsh foxes.
4th March 2012: The marsh vixen will be holed-up in her den for around ten days this month, giving birth to her cubs. The dog will bring food to the den for her. After the confinement, they will be increasingly busy hunting for themselves and the cubs. This is the time when I expect to have the opportunity of seeing and photographing the foxes more regularly, as they scour the marsh for food, by day and by night. They will find time to relax together, though, and I hope to see them frolicking in the pasture on warm evenings. If I am fortunate, they will take their R & R time when I am imitating a tree or bush near by, dressed in my ghillie jacket and a Realtree face mask, with my camera at the ready.
