Mr Burn spent nine months filming black fox and his red vixen galavanting in his garden and surrounding countryside.

Sadly, black fox died in February this year after being hit by a car and Mr Burn recovered the dog fox’s body, which he then sent over to Irish taxidermist Ingrid Houwers in Bangor, County Down.

“A fox like him deserved to be stuffed, not just left to rot. I have such fond memories of him,” said Mr Burn.

However, his story does not end there – in fact, it’s ongoing.

Mr Burn explained: “Black fox’s vixen comes every day for a feed and in June this year she appeared with her cubs. From their colouring, there’s little doubt they are black fox’s offspring.“
