Just a few hours after our regular visitor, Limpy, showed up in the garden we were visited by two more foxes. A dog and a vixen in great condition – Just look at the way the dog fox poses for the camera!
Even though this is the time of year when foxes are pairing up and mating, I don’t think these are a breeding pair. They still look rather young and have very similar markings. So I think they’re siblings from last year’s litter from a den in the woods across the field from our house. It could also be possible that Limpy is their sister because all three foxes are occupying the same territory and must come across one another on a regular basis. Clearly all three foxes appear to be tolerating each other without conflict.
