    Noticed quite a few lately. One big one( this one) and two smaller ones. They seem to be having a good year. Massive creatures of habit as well so if you see one on your travels chances are they will be there tomorrow. They love a routine it seems to me. This is tonights one

    I didnt think it would be wise to take a photo from the front as the flash might hurt his eyes what with him being nocturnal.

    Any body else see them much?

    Except squashed on the road.

    I loves me some nature as you all know. Particularly urban nature like foxes, hedgehogs, bats and the birds round here.

    Sometimes they make a hell of a racket as well. Surprisingly loud when they want to be.

    Vermin; just rats with spikes.

    You do realise urban nature is actually rural nature? It’s just you’ve encroached on their habitat with your pikey tent and grotty car.

    No hedgehogs here but foxes roam the streets as if they own the place, and sometimes at dusk I sit out in the garden watching bats flying around. I’ve also had a kestrel fly off with a sparrow from my garden.

    We hadn't sent many here before until one turned up in the garden a month or so back when it was very dry. We have kept a dish of water topped up in case it calls again.

    No foxes this year. I think that the chasse has got them, but we have got fouines (Beech Martens) somewhere close by.

    Haven’t seen one for years because where I live but when I was still living at mams she has a field behind the house so used to see them all the time walking home from the club so I’d put him in the garden to eat the slugs and other bugs

    If they were walking home from the club they probably wanted bed, not slugs and shit.

    Way of life here. The boundary between two communes crosses our drive and each has a chasse. There is also a private chasse. We had a problem with wild boar last year, but the 3 hunts couldn't agree whose responsibility it was to track them. Fortunately the boar moved on before the gunfight at the OK Corral took place. Hunting generally is restricted to Thursdays and Sundays and only out of breeding season, but one of the chasses came past early yesterday morning, so the boar must be about again.
