I was wrong although the behaviour was due to it being mating season. The foxes where fighting. And in front of the camera too. Check the series of events and watch each film all the way. One of them features a blink and you miss it behaviour. In the last one the foxes fly across so fast you don't believe they are foxes.

Anyway that was a bit of new exciting behaviour for here. I will keep the camera up and see if any more interesting behaviour arises. Plus as I promised something different will go up on here which I captured last night.
