Saw a fox this evening, as bold as brass, sauntering down the pavement from The Hartley to The George on Tower Bridge Rd. As it was 5.30 the rush hour was in full flow but the mass of cars and pedestrians didn't seem to faze it one bit. It only started to jog when a car beeped at it as it crossed Leroy St. It obviously feels far safer in SE1 than the Home Counties - a real urban fox, they'll be catching the bus next!

I saw one (a very big well fed one at that!) crossing Long Lane by Weston Street about 8-15 am just before xmas and this also seemed not to care at all about its human neighbours!

Saw a very health fox going into the garden on the West side of Grange road, at the TBR end on my way home from the Christmas party. I gave it a good holloa, but it didn't seem to notice... obviously not been hunted before.

I often see them skulking around in my car park, it's just that the one on TBR was so blatently unconcerned that surprised me, strolling down the middle of a busy pavement.

last winter I was sat in my lounge and it was nearly dark, I was just about to close the curtains and realised there was a fox at my window looking in at me. He was rather mangy though.

(how I'd love to add that I live in a second floor flat, though it wouldn't be true!!)
