Foxes like playing in snow too

Foxes get pretty excited when it snows too, if this video is anything to go by…

Just after a fresh dusting of snow towards the end of last year, one of our camera traps snapped this fox getting a little carried away before skipping off through the forest.

The camera trap was out on the North York Moors as part of our efforts to detect elusive pine marten in the area. All the locations we’re searching in are very isolated and off-path – which makes clips like this special, and also shows the value of Forestry Commission plantations for wildlife.

This camera (and others) were set up and collected by our wonderful volunteers who help us monitor the area. Cameras are still out right now and we’ll continue covering large areas of the Moors over the next year… whatever the weather!
