Getting the train back from Southease today(7th February), I saw a fox by the side of the railway in Seaford. It was lounging about enjoying the sun, and after a fairly disappointing walk around the Ouse today it was nice compensation. One unusual thing, though is that it had a very short and pudgy nose, and looked smaller than the adult foxes I see fairly regularly. A cub perhaps? But surely it is too early in the year for the foxes to have had cubs, let alone for them to be away from their mothers or look so well developed? Or do foxes take several years to mature, so a year old fox will still have some cub-like features? If anyone knows anything about this, please leave a comment.
