The two foxes are still visiting and are still fine with each other. LAst nigh I captured the point when they meet up. Interestingly the fox who was first here feeding went down into a subordinate posture. However the other "dominant" fox left the scene for a while after this display. Could he have misinterpreted it? Take a look below. The interaction is over two videos so be sure to watch both. In the second video the "subordinate" fox opens its mouth as if calling but emits no sound. I wonder what this was about.
