The red fox
Urban wildlife – In Bristol, UK, the red fox has been present since the 1940s. Here an adult fox finds peace on the roof of a small shed in the back of an overgrown garden. The fox is rarely in conflict with humans except for rare occasions when they go into the bins. Actually, dogs and cats are often the culprits but the fox gets the blame. The breeding season is in January and February and you can be lucky to hear them bark and scream. As adults, they use at least 12 different vocalisation sounds. Maybe the most commonly heard is the “wow wow wow” contact call.
The great tit
This winter has been very wet and grey and therefor was a cloudless mid-January day a warm welcome, and this morning the forest was alive. Here a great tit is singing beautifully it’s morning call while paying attention to its surroundings. The great tits are one of the most common birds in Denmark and the rest of Europe except for the very coldest areas. Although we are in a biodiversity crisis, some animals thrive and we are surely not going to lose this song yet.
The long-tailed tit
Long-tailed tits shot on a wet and grey winter day in Denmark. This little bird must be one of the cutes garden birds in Denmark with its ruffled feathers and black eyes. Fortunately, this species is categorised least concern on the Red List both in Denmark and internationally. During the summer the long-tailed tit is quite timid and keeps away from humans. But, in the cold winter, they gather in small groups in search of food. Here you can be lucky to see them on your bird-feeder. In the cold night, they sit close together on a branch to keep each other warm.
