To get your eye in for the sizes of things here are screenshots from videos taken over the last couple of nights with the same camera in the same position. Here’s a Badger:
Here is a fine figure of a Fox
And so what on earth is this animal we caught on camera in the early hours of this morning?
Unfortunately the video started at this point and so this is the most we saw of it disappearing under the fence. I have racked my brain as to what this can be and really have no idea. It looks like a fox cub but I cannot find references anywhere to foxes being born in the UK other than in the spring.
The camera is back in place tonight and I am hoping that it will make another appearance.
