The whole fox

Finally, after getting a head and a tail, the trail camera bags me the whole fox.  The following sequence comprises four images taken over about 20 seconds.

Fox investigating Oak Shades at about 10pm on a January evening. 

We have been hearing odd, almost metallic sounding barks.  A post from WRAS tells us

"The Foxes do bark and call at this time of year when vixens are on heat, as they search for each other, studies have shown vixen try to advertise that they are on heat and try to mate with numerous foxes rather than just one. The noise is short term and stops fairly quickly."
