Wet and bedraggled fox hugging the fence line behind diggle flash,
Although if foxes had a site like this its report would probably read soaking wet and bedraggled human idiot with equally wet and bedraggled domestic cannine,

On site on Monday (Southern half) I noticed lots of grey alder were being devoured - looks like alder leaf beetle, which was once thought extinct apparently!
