It is nearly chucking-out time, when they all go off to be run over, judging by the main roads near us. You may want to discourage them as they are noisy, they rip open rubbish bags and carp in the flower beds.
Before you call the RSPCA do work out exactly what you want them to do. Pest control firms will kill them for you. It is illegal to trap and release elsewhere.
They will be even noisier when they start mating in January.
Above all, do not feed them under any circumstances or you will only encourage them to see your garden as a feeding-station.
And keep your dog, if you have one, away from their lair as many urban foxes have mange. A terrible complaint and expensive to cure a dog of.
