Trail camera, badgers and darker evenings

It’s getting darker earlier and earlier each evening and it won’t be long before the clocks go back meaning it will be dark not long after I get home from school.

I’ll miss seeing the badgers in daylight, but look forward to making more of an effort to put the trail camera out.

Over last night my trail camera picked up one particular badger pottering backwards and forward around part of the sett. It has part of its right ear missing and quite a kink in its tail. It has probably been in a fight with another badger.

Looking back at some old footage and photos, I think it may be one of the twins. Now that it has a missing part of its ear, it will be much easier to recognise.

Arrow strolls through at 5am.

  1. Growing up on a ranch in Texas, I often saw badgers but they were more plain than yours. And no one ever photographed them. As I remember they were fierce fighters.
