Fox and pheasant

We saw this fox from the living room window yesterday. I spotted what I thought was a characteristic 'pounce' through the bushes. Waited and eventually this animal appeared on the edge of the treeline and sat watching over teh snowscape for a few minutes.

Just look at that fantastic tail. This is only the fourth time I've seen fox on the fen. I've rarely come across any sign of them either which indicates that they are genuinely scarce here. Interestingly our walk round the fen yesterday afternoon found fox prints in the snow which looked like from Saturday.

Mr Fox is happy to help himself to any of our plump Pheasants! They do taste very nice!
