Fox activity

I was just about to eat breakfast when I heard a sound like some one climbing our wooden fence. I opened the curtain and looked out the window and a few seconds later a large fox rushed past and jumped through the gap in our neighbours fence. I moved the curtain and looked out the conservatory door and another smaller fox was on the flint wall.  This was probably a female (vixen) and the larger fox a male (dog).

I rushed upstairs to get a better view of what was going on. The vixen disappeared over the north wall. The dog fox was in the gardens behind ours.

Several times it ran up the steps and back into the garden. After a while it jumped the fence into the next garden. It crossed the garden and jumped onto the flint wall and appeared to be following a scent trail.

The fox then jumped down into the next garden and I saw its tail disappear over the next fence before I lost site of it,
