Inevitably it was shy, and skulked the long way round the back of the pergola to escape the glare of the camera; but not without pausing long enough for one more shot.
First thing this morning I headed to the campus playing fields which back on the the Downs... and got my second adult fox in the space of around 7 hours.
Regular followers of this blog will know that I am also watching out for the local gulls who are nesting on rooftops. One pair has set up residence outside the window of an office (pressed up against it). The chicks appeared yesterday, so are around 24 hours old in this shot (taken from outside).
Work took me out to Worthing (about 20 miles away) for the afternoon. They too have a local gull population, which is growing rapidly. Here are three of the latest arrivals.
To close, a couple of shots of one of the cubs tonight, as the sun was going down.
Camera note: all shots taken with the Canon 7D and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens.
