I didn’t manage to fit a write up on badgers during 30 Days Wild even though I did visit my local sett numerous times.
The badgers are really struggling with all the dry weather at the moment and although I don’t feed them very often I have taken water and some food soaked in water down a few times in the past couple of weeks.
Badgers, and other wildlife, are not only struggling to find nearby water, but with the ground so hard food such as worms are much harder to come by.
The adults are able to trot down to the stream for water, but the cubs are still staying fairly close to the sett and I’m not sure they are going as far as the stream.
I spread the food around so the badger cubs had to forage for it. The cub with the dark mark down its white strip is the more nervous of the two cubs.
