not birds but

I know this is a bird forum but just had an amazing sight out in the back garden. We have a local vixen which visits every evening, (yes we put scraps out, especially this weather ) and occasionally a badger. Just looked out to see both fox and badger feeding together. The vixen was wary but it was so lovely to see.

Of course I did NOT have the camera handy !!!!

As with birds if you begin to feed them they come to rely on you when times are tough. Well done for keeping it up. They must have been so intent on filling themselves up they called a truce lol :)

what a special sight....just lovely.we rarely see a fox but last night the security light woke me and I looked out to see a fox that had a deformed back leg...all it could pick up was a little bit of apple the birds had left.....not tonight though a bowl of dog food awaits if it visits again
