I have some news of the robin in the garage: four chicks have hatched from the eggs :yes: This evening I paid them a visit but the light was too poor inside the dark building for photos.
Afterwards I tried the lane where I sight the non-garden foxes, hoping to catch a glimpse of the Uband male and assess his response to his injury. I did see him briefly, but again he was very nervous and raced headlong into the hedgerow 😦
No such worries with one of his vixens. Through the camera lens I could see her breathing slowly, peacefully, sleeping in the meadow apparently without a care in the world.
Back in the garden, the Old Dogfox also seemed in a restful frame of mind, relaxing on the grass while the little vixen trotted noiselessly about.
While I can understand why Disney artists etc endow human expressions upon animals, I do think that foxes can talk as clearly through their ears as any cartoon character can through its mouth.
I've added lots of new photos to my Garden Fox album.
