Thoroughly enjoyed last nights except the poor little yearling that got caught and shot, I really don't agree with that and it had me in floods of tears, surely there must be another way, I also thought he could have brought his birds inside during the night.

What about the fox that had her own apartment? rightly or wrongly, he genuinely loved her didn't he and she was a stunning fox.

They are now showing more after the show on More 4 which is channel after the initial programme, this is channel sky 138, Virgin 147, freeviw 14, Freesat 124 and it's on for half an hour.

Looking forward to tonights bounce

I Agree Littlewid. It was hard to watch, and now I will be controversial. When I was lambing and the fox bit the heads of 8 lambs one night I wasn't too keen on it, but decided it was nature and had to accept the loss of my lambs. It was tragic to see and not something I wish to dwell on.

I hated the fact that he shot the fox, and wondered why it couldn't be taken far far away and released?

The man with the fox flat was just so eccentric, can you imagine? I felt sorry that the fox didn't seem to get out, even into a small outside area. It seemed to use a cat litter tray. Not sure I agree with it, but as you say he does genuinely love that fox.

I spotted that Littlewid, and have recorded it for later.

It was Doogs, but it is nature, rather like seeing the lions feeding on a young giraffe or ele, shocking and tragic but the circle of life Sad

How horrible for you Lai, it's the part of nature I hate, wont say anymore as it's upsetting for you.

I too think he could have relocated the fox, it was only a yearling so he would have been battling for an area of his own anyway i am sure, so to relocate him may not have been too much trouble for the little fox and I do think that if you know foxes are around, you look after your pets more and he should have been trying to protect his birds better, shooting the fox was very extrem I think and not really called for and I think that although they tried to cover it sensitively it could well encourage others to just call in the bloke that would shoot them without any hesitation.

Looking forward to tonights and will be watching the More 4 one as well.......at least if we are not on here we all know we are watching the foxes or Planet Earth Live or checking the web cams.......it's all go isn't it but very exciting bounce

cheers for doing the survey Littlewid. It will be interesting to hear the results at the end.

I haven't watched either programmes yet as we went into Manchester last night but I will be catching up during the day so I can watch tonights programme. I am forewarned now so no doubt will be in agreement with you Littlewid.

Great photos WS and Littlewid - lovely to see the cubs.

I've done the survey too

Really upsetting about the yearling. Great to see Brian May and his obvious love of nature and that he is doing so much to help them. His 'garfen' is where they released a hedgehog that got attacked and looking at the love and care he has I'm sure that the hedgie is doing really well there.

Caught up on both programmes now and will just say that Charlie is a total ass, that video they showed of the fox taking the piglet in a babygrow out of a pram was completely ludicrous. It proved nothing and made him look like a complete ****** Evil or Very Mad

Loved the poll at the end showing +++ for foxes cheers

I understand about rural foxes of course as I explained but I wouldnt have gone out and shot the fox for doing what a fox does. Thank god for people like Brian May. I remember that PPH about the hedgie, I think you posted a piece on it.

On a plus, all the footage has been fascinating and I am looking forward to tonight's programmes.

Well done for doing the survey as well PPH.

I quite agree about Charlie yesterday Lai, that proved nothing and I am sure scared so many people for no reason, that man was on a stupid mission to damage foxes and all the good work this programme has done.

Loved both of tonights programmes and can't believe it's all finished, I will really miss it. Good to see that so many people like foxes but a shame to hear the numbers were down from their last poll.

No more den cams after tonight, that is going to be a blow, I have loved watching them. All quiet at both dens at the moment but just managed to get a shot of one of the foxes under a tree, it is raining and not a good shot but may be the last capture I get.

I will miss all the foxes that have given us so much pleasure but I will mostly miss little Tom and I realy hope he does well and has a long and happy life, he has really touched my heart.

Thats right Doogs, last Mondays was an hour long, then the rest of the week there were fiv min updates everyone and then this week it has been on for an hour on Monday, Tuesday and today and then a half hour show on More 4, so you have loads to catch up on but they are brilliant programmes and the More 4 shows have had some interesting debates. Enjoy the ones you have recorded.

You will enjoy them Doogs. The Den cams are running until Midnight tonight. The little cubs are active at the moment, sadly I have just had to turn the cam off as I need to go to bed, otherwise I will oversleep in the morning, but it brought a tear to my eye to turn them off, I have so enjoyed watching them. I wish them all well Fox I love you

Lovely photo of Tom to end on Littlewid - I really hope he makes it.

Overall I really enjoyed the programmes - and hope that people now have a better understanding of foxes, especially urban foxes.

If anyone is at fault, it is us for encouraging them and feeding them, how can a fox know a boundary? That woman who had her window open in her kitchen and then wondered why the fox didn't understand where he could or couldn't go Rolling Eyes really, I despair of people sometimes! I would feed them but not encourage them to get closer and closer and to come into my house.

I will miss the den cams - they were wonderful to watch.

I quite agree with you about that woman Lai, she was very silly. They said on last night More 4 programme that they can't be sure but they wonder if the foxes that come into your house and take food from your hand are the foxes that have be in a sanctuary after beingill and have been rehabilitated, they will not be as wary of people as true wild foxes, I can understand that thought process, obviously they have no data to back that up but it's a good thought.

I am keeping my fingers crossed for Tom and don't laugh but when I eventually turned the cam off at about 11.15 last night I went to bed and and sent out thoughts to Tom and wished him well.......just the silly person I am Embarassed

I am really going to miss the programme and the cams, it was all brilliant.

On the FB page chat they are asking for an update on the foxes and also the den cams back, the chat has been quite huge on here during the programmes, so I have joined the chat tonight and also asked for an update and the cams back. I will keep an eye on the page and see what happens.......hopefully channel 4 will oblidge.

Yes I heard that about the rehab foxes and it's a good theory. I love that you sent Tom good thoughts, it shows what a caring person you are Littlewid.

Will check out their FB page later today, but great that you've been in touch with them - it would be wonderful if the cams stayed on for longer.
