Getting adventurous

By Dennis.Alden  
Visited the fox den this morning - didn't expect to see anything as I was quite late - but this little fella has decided he wants to see more of the world - he scaled a wall (about 3ft) that lines the ditch in which the den is situated and then trotted across the path to within 2 metres of me. After giving me a cursory look (during which I dare not blink let alone breathe) he trotted through the hedge and started exploring the wood beyond. After 30 minutes he had not returned and I presumed he was bothered by me - so I moved about 20 metres up the path, whereupon he emerged from the hedge and then trotted down the path to home! 30 seconds of magic that makes all the hours spent watching and all the cramp suffered well worth while!
