Soon after taking over the meadows, we had to have a large proportion of the circumference refenced to contain our dog who is burdened with a strong prey instinct and needs to be restrained from chasing off down the cliff after the foxes who live there.
The day after refencing, a hole appeared half way along the cliff run in the second meadow. We set a trap camera on the hole overnight to snap the foxes as they accessed the fields to hunt at night, with results that really surprised us, as shown below. Setting the trap camera up at night has now become a compulsion for me and its like Christmas each morning as I go out to retrieve the camera, load the images up and see what we’ve got as we eat breakfast.
ps don’t take any notice on the dates that are on the bottom of the photos – I need to work out how to set the camera up properly…..
