Hello birders

The recent thread on 1080 and foxes around Brisbane reminded me of the
increasing frequency of sighting foxes in and near Melbourne this last
twelve months or so.

In that time I have seen foxes in the Dandenong Ranges National Park,
Jells Park, Braeside Park and in the wetlands at Edithvale, and none of
them were particularly shy.

The number fox road kills around Melbourne, I believe, has increased
substantially, with hardly a day passing when I dont see one going to

Why are so many foxes about? Has the dcline in the rabbit population
forced them to prey further afield?
