Put a wire out for a Fox on my boundary fence.  Have caught in this run before.  Checked this morning and the snare had been knocked and wa about the size of an apple, so I’m guessing fox had been in it as it reeked of fox...........no sign of any major struggle.......is he likely to return through the run ?

Yes as you will catch in a run more than once anyway and being nearly caught once by something it don't know what it is isn't enough to make a fox totaly run shy.it also won't ever catch hung on the shed wall either.😉..
