Thanks Eric. It's a nice idea that it's some sort of scarecrow, and maybe it works too! Often thatchers would incorporate an animal in their design and it became their trademark; sort of early advertising I guess. In this case though, the house in the village of Foxton, Cambridgeshire, so it's likely to be a reference to the location I would think.

Wonderful shot of this old house!! I am thinking the fox is there to keep birds away or is it just there for decoration?

Thank you I'ina, this is our neighbour's house in the UK. Still lots of thatching there.

Thank you Shirlye and John. Foxton is full of old buildings and yes, thatching is very much alive, in fact is a requirement for these Grade I and Grade II listed buildings!

The archetypal country cottage, beautifully captured, the fox showing the thatcher's artistry. (I hear that thatching, feared to be a lost art, is still alive and kicking in the UK).
