Over the last couple of days we have noticed our latest new residents – the fox family wandering around the garden. Now I am not sure if they have moved in because of the snow, or just think they have found some easy food.
Mr Fox on the look out
But we do seem to have a plague of rabbits at the present and anything that will help keep them down is a good thing.
Mr Fox killing the rabbit
Pauline says I should not show the images of the fox ripping the head off the rabbit and pulling on the gut so I have put this one in instead.
Mr Fox making sure it is dead
We were sitting having our tea when bold as brass Mr Fox walk passed the window with a wiggling rabbit in its mouth.
Mr Fox making sure no-one is watching before taking the food home
Evidently he was worried that it may get away as he stops to kill it by removing the head, then has a look round to make sure everything is ok before carrying it off to his home (his earth)

Finally placing it down the burrow for the rest of the family to eat
Its dinner time!!
This is my ad hoc update and diary describing how I am developing our garden at Trostrie Cottage in Galloway. You can see the garden for yourself if you book a self catering dog friendly holiday @The Shieling which is attached to Trostrie Cottage
