Foxes are found across the UK and can survive in almost any habitat. Unusually, you are more likely to see a fox in a town or city than in a more natural setting. The UK’s urban fox population may be as high as 150,000 and many of these animals have become relatively habituated to humans. Country foxes tend to be much warier and are far harder to see as a result. Foxes are primarily crepuscular, meaning they are most active around dawn and dusk. However, it is not unusual to see them during the daytime, particularly in urban areas.
