In May of 2021, I first became aware of a family of Fox living under the boardwalk in
We took several trips to see them before they came out of the den
and up in sight, while I was there, and able to get pictures.
I was thrilled to photograph this Red Fox Family and I shared those pictures from May 2021 here.
Now, it has happened again.
They have taken up residence in the same den at the North End Pavilion
which was destroyed by a fire back in 2019.
As you can imagine, this family of Red Fox ~ Mom, Pop and 5 Pups ~ are getting a lot of attention.
The beach may seem like an odd spot to see a Fox Family,
yet it is in fact very common as Fox are indigenous to the beach area.
It is believed they will stay in this den for 6 - 8 weeks and then move on!
We saw 3 of the 5 pups, mom and dad did not make an appearance.
The town has installed a fence around a large area where they are,
to keep people from getting too close, and to keep the Fox safe.
