>We saw plenty of Red Foxes hunting by daylight in eastern Hokkaido. There was also abundant evidence in the form of tracks in the snow, of many more. They seem cuter, cleaner, fluffier and bolder than UK foxes. This particular individual was hanging around one of the east coast fishing harbours where we were trying to photograph sea ducks and gulls. It didn't seem at all bothered by us as it nosed around and occasionally pounced into the snow.
