Guest blog for The Badger Trust

Recently I wrote a guest blog for The Badger Trust on badger bedding.

How often does a badger change its bed?
A Badger Trust guest article by Alex White

Badgers have fascinated me since I saw my first one at the age of three. The more I learn about them, the more I realise that I don’t really know that much about their lifestyle, especially what goes on underground.

Most people unfortunately only ever get to see a badger dead on the side of the road, but some lucky people have badgers visiting their gardens or, like me, know of a sett where they can watch them go about their day-to-day life.

I’ve been lucky enough to see badgers close up on numerous occasions through volunteering with my local badger group for badger vaccination and rescue. The obvious highlight is watching a rehabilitated badger released back into the wild.

Through the many hours I’ve spent watching badgers at my local sett I’ve come to respect their intelligence and ingenuity.

“One of the acts that never ceases to bring a smile to my face is watching a badger working its way backwards with a roll of hay being dragged between its front paws. ”
