As we looked out the window this morning, 7.10am, we spotted a beautiful fox warily trotting down the track towards our house. There were already people about, car doors banging and the fox was very alert to these sounds. It trotted past our house and turned right and disappeared up the road.

I reached the end of the track and turned left to the road where I could get a view of the snow covered South Downs.
I walked back down the track towards our house.
I small flock of noise blue tits passed through foraging for food. I also spotted a dunnock foraging in the foliage lower down.
A male and female blackbird hoped around in the branches
I kept an eye out for birds from our back garden time to time.

As I walked up towards Easthill Park I noticed movement in the branches. It was a tiny goldcrest, the smallest of our UK song birds.

I kept an eye out and about 30 minutes later I saw one fox in the track. It appeared to be hunting, occasionally pouncing. I took a few pictures (without flash, after dark – only possible because of the snow).
After a few minutes I decided to follow the tracks (my daughter came with me) and see where they led.
