Caught under a bush

Red seems switched on at the moment. I’m hopeful that there will be a den on the north marsh this year; if not, then maybe somewhere along Hoo Wood hill.

Red has caught me hiding under a bush with my camera and a net over my head. A  breeze is blowing from him to me, so I don’t believe he can smell me. I walked carefully around the pasture perimeter to avoid leaving my fresh scent all over the place. The red dog knows the marsh so well!  Maybe I made a noise. I get my own back by capturing his image. He walks slowly away, so perhaps his sixth sense has alerted him and he hasn’t seen me at all.

  1. It must be incredibly rewarding to see those beautiful foxes roaming there so close. Thank you for sharing these photos.

    • Yes it is. This is one of the benefits of a closed reserve. Also, most of the animals are either used to seeing me, or familiar with my scent.
