For day 11 of 30 Days Wild we followed the trail of a fox. We crawled on our hands and knees through bracken and nettles, under brambles and over fallen logs.
We found discarded meat and an old rabbit skull.
I could smell one of the foxes which must have passed through moments earlier.
Fox poo illustrated to us we were on the right trail and tufts of rabbit fur and scattered pigeon feathers indicated the way.
Deer footprints and badger snuffle holes showed us foxes weren’t the only ones to use these trails.
After around an hour and covered with stings and scratches, our knees dirty and hair full of twigs and leaves, we were rewarded with the beautiful sight of fox cubs playing.
