One minute it's getting a bit milder and the next minute it's a cold front again.
On Monday night it was set to be 6 degrees over night and dry. So I was thinking MOTH TRAP. After a bit of convincing, dad agreed to set up the trap in the dark. I got up extra early on the Tuesday and went out full of anticipation, and guess what.......................not a single moth! But it was worth a try of course.
Tuesday night was getting a bit colder but it was going to be dry again, but windy. So this time I thought TRAIL CAM. The trail cam went up on the back fence and a few scraps from tea got thrown just in front of it. And here is the fabulous result:
Of course, we saw quite a few cats as well, but these two foxes visited separately from about 10:10pm until 4:50am. One fox has very obvious patches on its flanks,so you could tell there were two. Then at 5:03am they both got filmed having this tussle; all the food had gone by then. But was this playing, fighting or maybe courtship. What do you think?
So not really a Fox Moth at this time of year of course, but moths and foxes were what I was after.
