We went badger watching last night. Inspired by the photos of a guest, Lee Mills, who managed to capture some photos of badgers really close up while on a walk through the woods, we decided to go on a stake out.

We had the essentials- midge head-nets, snacks and a picnic blanket to sit on and we took it a few hundred yards up behind the house close to one of the badger runs and just sat. As the dusk settled we heard rustling and then saw a badger tobogganing down a steep mud slope and trot along the path below us. Soon after another followed and another and we watched them for an hour foraging and wandering around the little gulley.
