A badger was spotted nearby last year, and deep in the forests I've seen a deer and that one fox, but without looking for, and being up at around 4 AM, I rarely see more then the occasional squirrel.
Hell, I saw more wildlife when I visited London. In the outer district I saw a whitetail prancing about.
Not that it's a bad place to live, it's not at all, but as a man who fell in love with British Colombia in Canada, that's my ultimate goal. That's where I'm going to try to live. The absolute indescribable inherent wildness of the nature coupled with the most wonderful people I have ever met means I want to be nowhere else.
So to answer your question, they're not rare but they're incredibly shy and hidden. We have a tendency to wipe out entire species here, like wolves or bears (technically there are like 200 left in Norway so they're still there, but really that's as good as extinct) and soon enough wales too. Foxes have good reason to be shy.
Yep, looked it up. A woeful 164 bears left in mainland Norway in 2009. Probably even less now.
