In September the fox ate the windfall Victoria plums. It also stood on the compost heap to reach low hanging damsons and for a few weeks there were purple scats everywhere.
Then we noticed the fox was taking Molly’s orange ball and moving it every night. We placed a juicy orange beside it but still it went for the ball. Then the ball disappeared altogether - if you find a fluorescent orange ball in the Maentwrog nature reserve, please return it.
For the past few nights I’ve left an apple and an orange in the same area and last night the apple was taken by the nervy fox.
Why not the orange? Maybe it’s saving that for duck a l’orange.
