    Mistaken identity I think, pretty much impossible.

    Possibly from a late litter, when you say small, how small and what colour? Cubs I've been getting have been later this year where I am

    +1 I would go with late, can't see it being early!

    Have seen vixens running in late October in the South which means end of Jan cubs. Usually it's either the moon before or the moon after Christmas meaning late Feb cubs,although I have already heard vixens calling. Can't really explain where your lot came from unless they were part of somebody's release project and bred in captivity.

    They have been known to be released around that area, they were a slightly smaller than a small jack russel, and dark brownish colour , i saw cubs early in that area last year so maybe a release project.

    I agree South Warwk's and North Glos were prime spots for "Tame Foxes" when I was a keeper in that area. the earliest I saw cubs above ground though was mid March and they were just turning colour to red so born early Feb. A friend of mine shot 8 foxes one morning near Stratford all within 200 yds of his house, and they were every size and colour you could think of and all having long toenails. I think they must have come from the back of a van.

    On one of my permissions ive shot over 40 foxes in a year from a single field, the more i shoot the more they keep coming, but im not complaining,,but some of them had 3 legs and operation scars and marks and all very large well built foxes

    Don't know about anyone else but we shot a vixen 5 weeks ago on our shoot it was in season .
    foxes have been seen running in pairs on and off since harvest so anything can happen with the weather being out of sinq
