First the bad news:
Then the worse news:
This is the first time I have caught these varmints in the garden on the trail camera. They got in last winter when the fence blew down in a gale and I have been stuck with them since.
Then some good news:
When the fox first turned up it seemed much more interested in something in the rocks and logs behind than in the peanuts. I suppose it could smell the rabbits but if so it didn't catch one.
Eventually it settled down to eating the peanuts.
After the fox disappeared the rabbits returned.
Later a fox came back but there probably wasn't much left to eat. I'm not sure if it is the same one but there are definitely two that visit regularly.
