I live in surrey too
In our town there is anarchy between the wildlife, we have Obese squirels, Grumpy crows, murderous magpies that will attack anything for a chance of a meal, even a Swift, if a magpie knocks one of them out of the sky there's no way he will get back into the air as their legs are underformed.
Also we now have a problem with Foxes attacking domestic cats, dogs even though their owners are walking them, and most recently a garden tortoise was mauled by foxes, luckily it survived.
the main reason we are having problems with foxes now is because the local Council provided the houses of Addiscombe with wheelie bins, now the foxes cant get at any food, before this the the lazy foreign dustman who couldn't be bothered to walk past your gate insisted we left our rubbish in black bags outside on the pathway at the side of the road, of course the foxes and domestic cats were loving it and people were losing their pet cats because their was more food for pickings outside than in the home.
Once the Cats and foxes were a team now the foxes have become the hunter again, I did advise barbara not to get a new cat due to the recent spate of attacks on householders cats, but she got penny and Tuppence the other day.
over on the allotments the foxes have a more wild lifestyle and somewhat rougher, and Stuart and I saw a Fox take a Rat alive and chomp on it, despite the risk it could have been poisioned, also about the time when I wrote an article for the book of addiscombe some years ago there was heavy rain shortly after the first Fox cubs emerged, and between various plot owners and myself we managed to find 5 drowned fox cubs along the chaffinch brook.
I dont mind the Foxes at the allotment but they are public enemy no 1 in the town.
