I think I may have posted this before, but I once parked my car in our garage (which is close to the little park behind St. George's) on a very cold and frosty night. Got inside and realised I'd left my phone in the car. Went back down to find a young fox, curled up on the bonnet like a cat, where the car was warm...he looked at me as I walked up to the car, but didn't move, even when I opened the door. As I walked out of the garage he was settling back down to sleep.
I still have no idea how he got in or out of the garage (which is behind a pretty high wall).
This is the only year I have only seen two in our garden...sunbathing! last year we had seventeen, and there was a poor lame one full of mange...so i dont feed them now as it just quite naturally encouraged them.
See foxes in Setchell Estate on a regular basis, usually after dark. Squirrels everywhere, they're very excited this time of year!
There is one fox I've seen limping around with a badly damaged hind leg, might have been hit by a car or something. Wonder if anyone on the Council or animal welfare should be notified. Was sad to see, though don't quite know how they'd catch it...
Enjoying all the bird song these spring days, almost like being in the country-side if you close your eyes and dream ...!
There are lots of foxes north of Elephant and Castle (London Road, St Georges Road). If you go around there at around 4-5am, you can be sure to encounter one. There are plenty of green spaces/waste grounds that are ideal as a safe retreat during daytime. I think they are the culprits for all the spilled litter and opened bin bags on my street at night. Have you noticed how scary it is to hear them during the "love" season: they scream like someone is getting stabbed, the first time I nearly called the police.
