Too Many Rats on the Marsh

The north marsh is in need of a hungry fox family.

When my camera traps are collecting too many videos of a particular animal, this alerts me to a possible out of balance situation, and I am watching too many rat video clips at the moment: 59 minutes last night and more on previous nights.

This rat family home is a hole into the side of a badger’s sett entrance. Something has been into the sett and cleared out an old badger skull and a few other bones. I’m trying, so far without success, to find the north marsh vixen’s birthing den; I know she is pregnant.

  2. There is a very nice movie about wolves that you may be interested in… called “Medicine of the Wolf.” ( Very moving and penetrating for sure.) Much of its contents pertains to foxes also.

    It is not often that you read of someone needing a fox about.

    Perhaps they are just making sure the fox larder is well stocked for when the cubs arrive :0

    I’m really not that fond of rats. I hope the fox can do good work.
