Red Foxes can be found in urban area, gardens, deciduous woodland, mixed woodland, arable land etc. They have a very wide and varied diet. In lowland rural areas foxes eat small mammals, especially field voles and rabbits, which are the major source of food, with earthworms, beetles, fruit (particularly blackberries) and small birds also being predated. Urban foxes get large amounts of food, much of this deliberately supplied by local householders. This is supplemented by scavenging from dustbins, bird tables and compost heaps. Those living in some urban areas may also eat many small birds and feral pigeons.
