It then flew over to the hawthorn for a moment before flying off. This is the first one that I’ve seen on the plot since the ones that used the bird feeders I had a couple of years ago, before they were destroyed by squirrels.
I’ve seen few foxes anywhere on the site over the past year so I was well pleased to watch, then photograph, this one yesterday.It’s standing on the path at the bottom western edge of the plot. I think that it’s Fox Sparky, and I shall confirm that with plot neighbour Lorna when I next see her. On Sunday she was telling me that last week she had enjoyed watching two cubs playing at the back of her plot where foxes have long been resident.
Some days the peace and quiet has been disturbed by two or three mallard ducks quacking loudly as they’ve flown around overhead. They live on the adjacent ecology park pond.
Plot neighbour Trevor has been well pleased at having a wren nesting in his shed, and with blue tits that have been using one of his nest boxes.
Happy plotwatching, and have a good weekend!
