This is Alice the red fox again. She lives at Rye Meads RSPB, and has become quite used to people, especially since the staff gave her supplementary feeding last winter, as she had a limp (which she still has). When this picture was taken she was sheltering from the rain by the visitors' centre.
She doesn't always show up by any means - I've only seen her twice.
As far as the habitat's concerned, there's nothing in the list that fits!

Lovely pictures Simon and despite the limp, she looks pretty healthy.

What would you suggest as an appropriate Habitat? Maybe the iSpot administrators can add it to the list.

Approriate habitat? Gosh, I don't know. She was outside the visitors' centre, not far from a picnic area. I wonder if a category of "Other - please specify" might be handy. It would mean that categorizing by habitat might be awkward, but if we're making inaccurate assignments at the moment, it might still be an improvement.
