Crail has been smelling a bit foxy for the last couple of weeks. Foxes have a very distinctive smell and several areas of Crail (Roome Bay, Pinkerton and Denburn) have had this very strong smell. But even though it seems to be everywhere I haven’t seen a fox in Crail for months. I finally saw one crossing the road just outside of Crail in the car headlights this evening. A fox can have a very large range – several square kilometres so it could be one very mobile individual. It’s always brilliant to see a fox: one of the few mammal species that thrives no matter what we do, getting on with it right under our noses, but usually invisibly.
