Thank you yes I had already tried the Fox Project but they say they don't cover SE London unfortunately and suggested I try (which I am) a homeopathic treatment which i have no faith in, to be honest. Vet will not give me proper vetinary medication on prescription as it is very dangerous to dogs but they could administer it if fox was caught.

Just had a report of a pheasant on the St Olave's playing fields next to Green Dale cycle path.

The East Dulwich Shoot will convene at 4pm. Volunteer beaters required...

There were actually two pheasants there a male and a female. Here's a snap of the male:

They're known to use the cover of all the greenery of railway embankments to venture this close in to central London. Pheasant motorways smiling smiley

Plenty of foxes near Peckham Rye, we see them in the garden a lot. This cheeky young one was trying to bury what looked like an orange ball in our lawn the other day smiling smiley

Is it me or are the autumn colours on ED street trees even more spectacular than usual in places? Some really fiery reds and oranges. Is it a result of the summer heatwaves or something else?

I would have thought a brace of pheasants would be easy pickings for the foxes. Especially if traversing along the railways.

They're a bit useless at self-defence, but they are big and that will put off a fox. There are far easier pickings in south London than trying to hunt down a large and very feathery meal smiling smiley

We have also been concerned about and trying to feed (and medicate homeopathically, which we have no faith in either) a very sickly fox cub in the vicinity of the new life assembly church on upland. Perhaps the same fox?

Not ED, but close enough:
The pond in the wildlife garden in PR Park has been refilled and looks like a proper pond. The very dense plant growth has been cut right back.
Hopefully it will mean more frogs, toads, newts, water insects, etc.
