Watching animals go about their own daily life can be quite entertaining sometimes. While I was making breakfast I saw the fox sidle up to the geese in a very disinterested way hoping to nick one of the goslings. But one of the adults reared up.. flapped their wings and the fox beat a hasty and undignified retreat. It looks like she might have a den with some cubs behind the paddock on the railway line as she is making regular journeys across the garden to active rabbit warren. My wife caught her with a baby rabbit in her mouth so she must be waiting by the entrance to catch those who have yet to learn the rules.
Its been the hottest May Bank Holiday ever peaking at nearly 28C. For the last four days we have had an azure blue sky with no clouds/ Its still very warm but the first clouds have reappeared signalling a change is on the way.
