For the last few months we have had a couple of young foxes occasionally snuffling around our front garden at night. We’ve probably only been aware of it because we have a bell that sounds in our bedroom if anyone goes near our cars.
But lately they been serenading us from under our bedroom window and last night they reached a crescendo.
They do an answer and call. One is a perfect imitation of It from the Addams Family - if slightly more frenetic and a hell of a lot louder. The other sounds a bit like a very loud cawing crow crossed with a furious Pekinese.
They suddenly look a lot bigger but that could be their winter coats. It’s a bit early for fox rutting isn’t it? I thought that was more January ish? I wish they’d just get on with it and go off and have a nice quiet afterglow.
We chase them off but 10 mins later they’re back. Last night was exhausting. This morning I feel like I’m tge one who’s had the night on the tiles; but they’re the ones that had the fun.
I’m going out with the Jeyes Fluid today. Any other suggestions?
