Our Swindon and Wiltshire Camera Club members didn't let lockdown stop them taking their cameras out with them when they exercised.

And it seems the town's foxes made the most of the peace and quiet to get out and about in the sunshine.

Foxes are known for being nocturnal mammals, but that doesn’t mean you can’t spot them during the day too. 

UK lockdown started in March 24th, just about coinciding with the time most cubs are born.

These will remain in the den for 4-6 weeks, but as cubs get ready to explore the world they will slowly start venturing above ground near their dens during the months of May and June.

Check out the gallery for some adorable pictures of curious cubs at play, a few snoozes in the sunshine and Mrs and Mrs Fox sharing an affectionate moment.

Earlier this year, members of the Camera Club shared their best snaps from life in lockdown around Swindon and Wiltshire.

If you're a keen amateur and like the idea of your images appearing in the Adver why not consider joining our Swindon and Wiltshire Camera Club on Facebook.

The group is a fantastic place to chat with other members, post pictures, share ideas and inspiration.
