Welcome to Wild In Britain, an occasional and irregular photo journal of my encounters with all types of wildlife in the British Isles.

This fox has become a regular nightly garden visitor. I'm pretty sure it's a male. He eats any surplus bird seed that has been left over that day. There's also a Badger coming in nightly for the same reason, but it's a case of whoever gets there first gets the food. This was shot through the lounge window with lighting provided by the external light on the house - no flash, 1/20th sec handheld. He's only a couple of metres away, so a wide angle lens reduced camera shake.
