These lovely pictures and story were sent to the website by Beth Hall. Thank you!
When I lived at 226 Flint Court, right at the back of the Hall, one spring I had a fox family in residence. It must have been 2011. The four kits were in a den under the bit of decking at the corner of the garden.
The parents didn’t live there; the kits only came out when mother came to visit. They were there for two months — until they were big enough to get over the wall. Sometimes they came out on their own at night, and I heard and saw them chasing each other around the big deck. One of their favorite things was to run and jump on top of the grass plants, or run across the top of the rosemary hedge.
