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.
