photoblog image The Formby Fox

The Formby Fox


I took a trip down to the Formby Red Squirrel reserve in the hope of photographing some squirrels, however the only animal I saw was this fox standing by the side of the road. Still better than nothing, perhaps the squirrels will be out next time.

Fine capture Les. He looks desperate!

He looks a bit lean Les, perhaps he is a bit short of prey.

Hi. Is this perhaps the famous Formby Fox as featured on BBC Spring?AutumnWatch a few years back. She (?) had a bit of a gammy leg but was famously fed up close and personal on sarnies and chips (doesnt sound a healthy diet). If it is her, then I am so chuffed to learn she is still going strong. Perhaps she needs a few more chips.
Les Auld: I suppose it is always possible Bunny, he was limping a touch and the visitors do provide a rich and varied diet for them. Thanks for the comment.
