I mentioned in a previous post a possible fox den I had found whilst photographing herons in the North Pasture.
The cattle have checked it out, left their calling cards, and trampled the spoil heap. When I found this hole in the ground, the other day, fox paw prints were clearly visible, but no more. I think this is a test den dug by the north marsh vixen, and it’s unlikely that she will use it as her birthing den, but you never know. I will keep an eye on it.
