Fox  Hide Oxfordshire

 

 The Red Fox in the UK hold a great fascination and desirability to photographers.  Foxes can be extremely difficult to approach and so to achieve a certain standard of image takes years of dedication and patience. Our guide Nigel  has put in four years work and all the ground work in behind the scenes and we are very pleased to be able to offer this unique opportunity to photograph one of the most beautiful species the Red Fox. Our Fox Hide is located near Oxford where we have built a wooden two man permanent hide situated where the foxes feed. We work with the fox in the spring and Summer mainly, but some special days in Winter may be offered later .The site attracts a few Adult Foxes and Cubs . The site is also well attended by Buzzard and Red Kite . The foxes do come about 10 metres from the hide. All profit from the hide will donated to the MS Society .
