·         This very pretty Red Fox Vulpes vulpes vixen was the first of several females to have been associated with the older vixen shown in the background of the final photograph. She used to boss her around (which she accepted – this avoided conflict) and she had a rather mischievous demeanour, investigating everything and often testing items such as the severed hosepipe with her teeth – testing might be an understatement in this case. She also dissembled a bamboo-filled bee-house tube by tube, quite an achievement. Luckily for her it was unoccupied. If anything had been bitten, she was usually responsible. A favourite trick during the latter part of her time in the territory was to climb up on the patio table just outside the French windows but she was tricky to photograph there until shortly before she left for pastures new.
