9.40 am fox

I was suprised because the fox that sits in my drive and winds up my dog chooses 04.30 am.
Another fox I observed at a 21.40pm dusk.Another at pub closing time !

Urban.............

Urban foxes can be seen at any time of day I believe. It's only rural foxes that stick to more nocturnal hours.

Foxes

Unlike badgers, foxes tend not to have specific routes, they follow the line of least resistance; most often runs made by badgers, rabbits etc. . . especially rabbits!

This is just the easiest way through the fence line I suspect.

Badgers on the other hand follow traditional routes and if a blockage appears they just barge through, under or over it. Only if this is impossible will they deviate to find another way round.
