    Times may be all out, Sat am out first light, nothing for 1.5 hrs, decided to have a walk around, spotted 3 all close by not on my ground. One in evening after dusk, sorted. Sunday am one seen 11:15 am but moved before we could get rifle. Sunday 16:65 got another one then nothing for 3 hours, so visits very varriable and unpreditcable at present.

    Used to use old rabbit guts but now find that a tin of cat food (the cheaper the better) spread around (so it can't be gobbled up quickly) brings them from miles around to just where I want them to be...

    tin of sardines, pop a nail hole in side of tin and then nail throw the lid into a fence post. oil drips down the post giving the scent off, mr fox will dig around and lick the post. works for weeks without having the change it.

    We have been on the foxes for 2 nights this week. all year we see none. as soon as the lambs are born all changes. we have had 8 in to evenings.
