The Hoo Wood Fox

This is the Hoo Wood fox. His territory is Hoo Wood, Wilden Hill, and the areas around the rocket factory. I think he has held the territory for around three years; he’s very agile and quick on his feet. This fox runs rings around Spike. When Spike chased him one day, the fox turned and performed a slick twisting somersault over the dog, leaving him wondering where the fox had gone.

It has not been easy getting a decent image of this fox; I managed this one by hiding in a hedge.

    Excellent lurking Mike! So Hoo is more wary than Red?

    • I’ve spent many hours hiding up trees and in hedges, waiting for foxes to walk by. In this case, though, the Hoo Wood fox and a sunbeam appeared together half an hour into my vigil.

      Thanks very much for your comment, Carrie.
