NORWICH: Plantation Garden foxes

17th January 2015

On Sunday morning I went to the Plantation Garden off Earlham Road, an attractive Victorian garden with a gothic fountain that many people living in Norwich may never have even been to. The garden has been restored and cared for, but in recent times there hasn't been much wildlife recording, so I attended a meeting to discuss possible plans to rectify this situation. Whilst we stood and talked in the gardens, I noticed a Fox run out from a wall off to the right. It was followed by two more, and as we stood still two of them ran towards us, before darting off into the borders. Foxes are common around Norwich, but daylight encounters are always exciting. Once the meeting was over we had a walk around the garden, but the frost meant there was little in the way of wildlife about.
