Wildlife update: fantastic Mrs Fox

After yesterday’s animal magic, in which, may I say, beginner’s luck won through and I was most triumphant, now every wild animal in Bucks is calling round for a blessing. I am, in principle, a man of peace, but if this behaviour carries on will end up applying a water pistol, if not a shotgun, to our furry cousins. This morning Lucy and I were woken at 5·10 (5·10!) by a fox and a muntjac deer. I applied a camera not water (or other) pistol to the situation. This once. Preaching to the animals is a new line for me, and this morning’s message was: “Go away you little blighters. Haven’t you got homes to go to?” This splash comes with a Hello Magazine exclusive on our latest phasmid baby. Thus on to weightier matters than wildlife...
The legendary Mrs Trellis of North Wales points out to me that in Matthew 8:20, Jesus says that foxes do, in fact, have homes to go to. It’s good to know that. If tomorrow the foxes would care to follow Jesus’ instructions in this matter, this county will have a less grumpy bishop on Tuesday. Thank you very much.

Obviously the animals at your service were made to feel so welcome that they just had to spread the word. I like the pictures, but do sympathise with you on the hour...my husband would definitely not appreciate it...
