It pays to be up early on the weekend sometimes. I felt honoured to see this young fox taking a drink in our back garden in Withington, Manchester this morning. It’s the second time I’ve seen a fox here but the first time I’ve had the chance to take a photograph. There’s a field at the back of our house and I’ve often heard the foxes but rarely seen them. Our garden seems to be flourishing as an urban wildlife retreat. We’ve had a hedgehog recently and I’ve been told of a woodpecker and also bats frequenting the area. It’s a pleasure to have them here along with the usual garden birds and squirrels.
