One thing I have longed for in North Wales is a coastal Fox family and while we were up in the mountains sunbathing and joying the view over the Irish sea I finally got lucky when a Fox headed right towards me. While having dinner one afternoon I saw a Fox in one of the nearby fields at first I thought the Fox had spotted me but it seemed I was wrong as the Fox started to head right towards us scent marking as it came closer.Coming closer and closer
Below is the Female returning with an adult Rabbit in its mouth which it took to an area of bushes near a small pond. After another hour the wait was worth as two quite large cubs came out from some gorse bushes to play in the sun. As the light began to fade we headed off with the idea of returning to the same place at the same time but next time we would get in a better position where we could get a clear shot of one of the adults before it spotted us and we were rumbled.
