Having seen, sketched and blogged a cat being mobbed by magpies a few days ago, this morning Jim pointed out there was a fox on our garden wall and it was being harried by two magpies. One of them is the black and white blur above it!
We got this house almost 10 years ago and this is the first time we've seen a fox in the garden. We've seen traces - things like old bones etc. so we knew there was likely to be one that visited.
I got out my camera and although it was in continuous shot mode it wasn't in the right state for focussing on moving objects... So much to learn... These were the best out of 48 shots!
And of course I had to crop right in as I do not have a long telephoto... thank goodness for mega-pixels.
