Fox and badger feeding in my mum's garden in Bristol.
No interactions present.
two nocturnal beasts in daylight!
Although foxes often occupy unused corners of badger sets, the relationship is, I'm told, not a cosy one.
Many years ago, I saw a wildlife film shot in the Norfolk Broads. The camera showed a fox trotting along a path, disappearing into the reeds: then panned to show a badger heading in the opposite direction on the same path. Nothing else was seen for some moments, until suddenly the fox shot up into the air, above the reeds. I guess that the badger had the right of way!
The fox looks to have a severe case of the mange, poor thing.
