Red Fox
Vulpes vulpes

I was with Owen McHugh heading out onto the beach dunes at Montrose Point when Owen said, "Look! The fox is out!." Sure enough there it was, but shortly it was apparent that the fox wasn't alone.

We spotted at least three kits, though there may have been more. The most that were in view at one time was three, including one that looked a little larger than the others.

The kits were out, under the parent's supervision, only for about 10 minutes, and then everyone went back into the den.
