Puppy catch

30 July 2010 04:43

Success! All puppies are marked again. This is the first time that the puppies have the same colour in both ears. They are extremely heavy. In 2006 and 2009 I caught the foxes at approx. the same date and they weighed on average 1376 g, more than 300 g less than this year (avg=1696 g). This does not seem an effect of age because the puppies did appear for the first time on 22 June 2010. Previous years the first appearance dates were 26 June 2006, 25 June 2007, 25 June 2008 and 23 June 2009.
