Say cheese!


The red fox usually mates from January till March when they finally establish a den. They can have anywhere from 1 to 10 kits. I knew that a maternity den had been established in one part of the garden. I slowly approached it until I heard small dog-like noises. There i discovered this hole that was dug on the side of a hill. The young ones had probably been born a few weeks before.I took several pictures to get a good one, but the den had been established in an area that was mostly in the shade, complicating my efforts.
