New kids on the block

 We now have fox cubs on the garden.  These are the first cubs we have seen this year.
 The dog fox is keeping an eye on them to make sure they are safe.  We have only seen two cubs, but the vixen may well be elseware with others.
 Life is new and interesting when you encounted a food bowl for the first time.
 Shortly afterwards, the foxes quickly depart and the camera records the large grey female badger with two youngsters.
 The not so little badgers are also seen for the first time and they are scrapping over food just like the adults do.
There are 3 badger cubs here with the male.  The badgers seem to stay in a tight family group, unlike the foxes who split up and take some of the effort out of caring for their cubs in a large group.
