A badger and a fox

It is not often that I get both a badger and a fox together, mostly they will avoid each other and the fox will only appear once the badgers have left for the fields.

During the day I often find the fox asleep or resting near or actually on top of the badger sett.

Smee is one of my local Badgers, who has a bad right eye. He ( I think it’s a he) doesn’t stray very far from the sett and is the Badger that can always be found hanging around the sett long after all the others have gone out in to the field.

The other night my trail camera picked up a bit of interaction between Smee and a fox. I had put down a very small handful of peanuts and I think the fox was keen on having a fair share but Smee was having none of it.

    Wow, that is amazing footage. We don’t have badgers here in Australia, so it was great to watch it in the wild. I’ve only seen badgers on TV and they seem to be full of personality.
