My Urban Foxes


 

I started watching my urban fox family in 2011, at this point I'd never properly photographed wild foxes before, or had much to do with foxes. However three years on from then and my life now seems very fox orientated! Foxes are very misunderstood creatures, and I hope that some of my stories and photos shows what foxes are really like. Below I will tell the story of my urban fox families...

 

2017         

We finished last year with our family of four (Thea, Schofe and their two cubs), but things change very quickly for foxes! Luckily Schofe managed to hold his territory and he can often be heard howling after Thea when he can't find her. Our family size has already changed though, as Schofe has chased his male cub off to find his own territory, but we still have the female cub visiting a few times a week. It looks like she will be staying around, as Thea has a very obvious baby bump now! We think her cub from last year will stay and help Thea, which will make her less nervy, so maybe she'll keep the cubs in one spot.

Keep reading to see what happens!
