Welcome to Felixstowe Scribblers

Richard Cornwell, Felixstowe Editor of the Evening Star, has reported the case of a pub-crawling fox on the seafront at Felixstowe. The story can be found on the Evening Star website at http://www.eveningstar.co.uk/content/eveningstar/default/
If this was April 1st then the story would be taken with a pinch of salt - but no! This is the Christmas and New Year holiday period so there is no reason to disblieve this report.

The fox has been spotted and photographed at the Alex on the seafront, and later inside Bar 129 as it goes looking for food and titbits. Not phased by humans, the fox appears quite tame to the point that it has even been stroked. Well known to local anglers, it appears twice daily in itβ€˜s search for food.

Next time you see him in one of the pubs along the seafront, buy him a drink, or, better still, something to eat!

Foxes are beautiful creatures and the above photograph can be found on an informative fox watch website at http://www.permuted.org.uk/foxfaqs.html
