Young Mr Fox was inches away from the hens.
Just as well the chain link fence was between them or he'd've been even closer.
And in broad daylight too.

An outstanding mosaic of woodland, wetland and grassland, rich in wildlife. The complex drainage of the site is not well understood but the resultant ground water seepages produce patches of flush-mire, supporting yellow iris, common spotted orchid, bog asphodel and sneezewort; and areas of alder and willow carr, supporting great horsetail, marsh marigold, and opposite-leaved golden saxifrage. Sessile oak woodland dominates the drier slopes. Acid grassland on the steeper slopes supports heath bedstraw and tormentil. Grid ref. (SD 69510)
