Hi Guys
Are foxes a threat to adult tortoises or is it just the little ones?

Can I just add to that please. Are herons a threat also as I get them coming into my garden after the fish.

Yes Herons are vicious b******S and their beaks can do alot of damage.

Biggest worry for us would be rats or magpies. Not trying to make it sound like our property is over run with rodents but our Siamese cat has killed 2. One left in the garden, the other brought through the cat flap and left in our sons room as a present!

The bottom of our garden has some old ancient oak and chestnut trees, these seem to being getting more and more magpies over the last few years.
