    Tend to see foxes nearly every day in London. Loads of them about.
    See the odd peregrine falcon they nest on they skyscrapers in the city and eat the pigeons :)

    I see loads of stuff daily.

    I see badgers, deers, foxes etc but they are all dead at the side of the road.


    Not this wee guy though! Wee daft blue * flew inside my truck window on the A69 like he owned the place!

    Foxes pretty common around here, they actually wake me up at night ficghting in my garden.

    A * deer did it's best to slide-tackle me on the M73 the other day, fortunately my F1 skills meant I could expertly dodge it.

    There's also a hamster in my kitchen, admittedly caged.

    Seen a couple of otters at the mouth of the Esk one time after Musselburgh racing one night.One of them came quite close in the hazy light, but it came out the water and spent the next 20 mins crunching on a fish!

    Seen an Osprey catch a fish on a golf course in UAE too!

    Saw a black bear the other day while up north for work. A coworker of mine saw a lynx which is very rare as they are extremely elusive.

    Seen a couple of these yesterday, extremely rare nowadays to see more than one at a time, must be nearing extinction.
