Just before the sun started to set we took a walk around the nearby field and wood.
There were plenty of deers in the field alongside a couple of hares. The air is becoming a lot busier, with bird song, bees, midges and a few butterflies. The Jackdaws are the noisiest, cackling, calling and cawing as they settle in their trees and holes for the night. The deers edge around the field stopping to nibble every so often.
On entering the wood it is easy to notice Spring is now here, huge patches of Primroses, the carpet of green is now turning purple as the Bluebells start to flower and all of a sudden all the trees seem to be budding leaves.
Coming past the Badger sett we both spotted what we think was Cookie the badger trotting through the sett and off under the brambles. (Cookie has a very distinct shaped tail).
With the warmer weather and midges, badger watching will now have to be done with hoods up.
