An evening walk in the meadow

I took a walk this evening before it got dark to see where they'd cut the meadow for the hay rake on sunday and spied a wonderful sight - 2 young foxes playing in the new mown hay. It seems the place they are attracted the most is the pile of stones dumped there years ago. Its now a great habitat for small mammals and grass snakes, and all sorts of bugs so no doubt a great hangout for fox cubs. Even though it was a bit chilly as well, the sky was clear and red tinged, there were quite a few bats flying around feasting on insects.
