Yesterday evening I was working in  the greenhouse and I looked through the glass to see a young fox strolling down the side lawn.  The fox walked across to the hedge and looked through to our neighbours garden.  Where you would expect to see a bushy fox tail, the animal had a skinny whip like tail.  The long hairs which characterise a foxes tail were missing completely, probably a genetic trait.  I have names the fox pintail.  It has now been seen taking food that our neighbours put out for the foxes each evening.
The vixens were howling last night.  Perhaps a little breeding is afoot!
