Foxes have become very tame in many areas and will sometimes allow themselves to be fed in back gardens. Badgers are commonest in Devon where they will often come to eat peanuts virtually from the hand. They are marvellous big creatures with an ambling gait.
Normally they appear at dusk and family groups leave their sets to fan out over the countryside in search of food, meeting up again later at the set again.
Another rare and endangered creature is the enigmatic water vole which if you are very lucky can be observed closely at Arundel Wildfowl Centre where they have been reintroduced to the marshes.
