Have you seen a black fox?
Over 20 years ago I was tipped off about an incredibly rare black fox in southern England and was lucky enough to film it. I have not seen one since...
The Springwatch team have been searching all over the country to see if any are alive today, and hopefully to film one, but unfortunately the trail has gone cold. Although I've heard rumours of sightings here and there, I'm intrigued to know whether or not there are any living examples of these near mythical beasts. And I really need your help.
If you have ANY information about a black fox, please, please let us know by commenting below. There was a confirmed sighting in Lancashire some time ago, but nothing recently as far as we know. And if you have any video or still photographs of one, even better. Add photos to the BBC Springwatch photo group, videos to the Springwatch Your movies section and let us know below.
Update 6 June 2010: Exciting news from the Black Fox Squad. I'll give you a full update on Monday's show. (Thank you all for this amazing response.)
Update 8 June 2010: Here's the video evidence of these near-mythical animals filmed in a garden in southern England.
