While walking towards a small wood, a fox was walking up the side of it 200m away. I stopped he/she did not, but spotted me within a few fox steps and it half barked and disappeared into the wood. After about two hours I was climbing a gate at the other side of the same wood when a movement on a path about 5m away caught my eye, knowing there was a fox around (there usually is) I stood on the spars on the gate exactly at the point when I had seen the movement. A game of patience ensued as I did not move and the fox came into view, but my camera was in my pocket. Anyway I did get it out and took a few snaps, most of them useless as the camera focused on the herbage not the fox, it was on spot focus and spot exposure as well!  One of the three here is not bad. I would say in the face of springwatch and other programs, that, foxes have much more of the AHH factor than badgers, to me a badger is a big scratchy weasel. I don't get the cute factor at all. Mind you if I kept chickens or ducks Mr fox would have a much reduced cute factor!!

      I take it this is a modified punch line from a red riding hood joke, where she disturbs the wolf three times in a different bush and the wolf says ” for god’s sake…………”
