First sighting of 2019 Badger Cubs

It may look like I’m really close, but I’m not. My camera lens is at full capacity and I’m balancing on a tree. All that taken in to consideration I’m really pleased to see 2019 badger cubs.


I had been watching other people’s footage of their badger cubs and patiently waiting for mine to appear.

In 2018 I first spotted cubs on May 4th, so I knew it wouldn’t be long.

With revision and exams looming I won’t get to see them as often as I would like, but I’m looking forward spending time in their company over the summer.
