Pic­ture of the week

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

OUR Com­mu­nity Edi­tor Mort Smith pulled up the blind AT his kitchen win­dow early one morn­ing this week, and was greeted by the sight of this beau­ti­ful vixen asleep in one of his flowerbeds.

“She was fast asleep in the early morn­ing sun­shine but her sixth sense must have alerted her to the fact that some­one was watch­ing be­cause she was quickly wide awake,” Mort said.

“She just sat there look­ing back at me for a minute or so but then she got up, stretched and saun­tered off across the gar­den and over the neigh­bour’s fence, pre­sum­ably to find a more se­cluded spot to fin­ish her nap.”

In­creas­ingly foxes are ven­tur­ing fur­ther into our towns and vil­lages, even to rear their young. It is dif­fi­cult to feel too ag­grieved, though, when you have the chance to see them close up like this.
