Whilst out walking along Birdcage Walk at dusk, I spotted a fox eating some supplementary food left out for horses (the second picture).

Foxes are most active at dusk and during the night, searching alone for food. They tend to live in family groups of one dog, one vixen and her cubs, with a few additional female helpers from previous litters. When dusk arrives however it’s every fox for themselves, whilst out alone foraging, the adults will try and eat almost anything they can find. Including insects, earthworms, fruit, berries, birds, small mammals, carrion and scraps left by humans.
