Yay :blackbird: spotted the green ground feeder by the hedge in the bird garden this morning:

You can just see, where it's lighter at the top of the picture, one of the gaps in the hedge. There are suet pellets scattered about there.

:hedgehog: The fat block tray behind the shed filled with cat biscuits was still there this morning :eek: :laugh: :fox:

I saw a fox last night. 'Twas in the moonlight; it just stood on the pavement about 20 yards away and looked around then trotted away.
Haven't seen a fox for best part of 30 years. Day Made.

Some brilliant photos of Foxes there but I'm not sure about the Zen( :unsure: ) thing. If I'd been shown the pictures without the comments I may well have suggested the Foxes were using their two main senses, smell and hearing, to get some idea if any prey in in the location. They do not need eyesight in that mode leaving themselves to concentrate on what they can smell and hear.

:detective: Another ceramic dish gone this morning :( I'm wondering how I can stop the flimsy plastic containers (fat block) or other plastic or foil (haven't tried those yet) from tipping up - could try employing a few bricks I suppose :scratch: :fox:

Saw Foxy Sunday night - was huge - looked like he was the Monarch of the 'hood :nod:

This morning the clear plastic mushroom box containing the cat biscuits had been removed from between two half-bricks :laugh: and was a short distance away from the roof tiles :fox:
