This evening Oxon Badger Group held an evening of Badger watching and a speakers panel.
Mark Avery, Dominic Dyer, Hugh Warwick and Caspar Henderson hosted by Charlie Moores spent an interesting hour discussing nature writing.
In turn each author spoke about why they wrote, their inspirations, the message they want to get across and how they hoped their books affected the reader.
I got a chance to show a film about Badgers I had made especially for National Badger Week 2017 (apologises for the sound problem)
At the end of the talk most people headed off into the woods, hopefully to catch sight of the famous Wytham wood Badgers.
