Munties just love apples as can be seen by this young buck attempting to get a large Bramley down.  The trail cam had a constant trail of animals including an 'VEGAN' fox.

Foxes are omnivores and can consume a large amount of vegatable matter. They do have a liking for sugar beet among other things, anything sweet is a favourite.

On the night time picture I can see what look like eye reflection in the background, or is it something else?

Yes,  I know.  Watched one walk along a ride one morning when stalking and it was sniffing and picking the ripest blackberries being very selective. Lucky fox because told not to shoot them on that estate.

Yes, there are a lot of very ripe fallings from late varieties. Mine where some bramleys out of our orchard and we baked a couple of big ones and they where delicious, so sweet.

Just looked at those 'eyes' in the fox picture.   If they were animal eyes then I am giving up that piece of ground !!!!  Bit too far apart for my liking.

I shoot a number of orchards and they can be a magnet for the deer, mainly roe and muntjac,  just having small blocks surrounded by open ground which I can't shoot, makes getting them difficult sometimes!

Seeing two or three big fallow bucks totally out of their heads on fermenting apples is the funniest sight you'll ever see.

If it were eye shine then it held pretty steady for 3 1/2 hours.🤔
