I’m really please to discover, after waiting patiently, that this years badger cubs are finally being brave enough to venture above ground.
It’s been really interesting watch through all of the trail camera footage, of which the above film is only a very small selection.
There seems to be two adults looking after the cubs. Mum (Arrow) and another female.
You can see the other female grooming a cub in the clip, then Arrow turns up and the first female very slightly dips her head down.
The other badgers seem to be comfortable with the cubs around and towards the end of the clip you can see an adult walk over as a cub climbs underneath it.
