Badgers

Friday, February 6th 2015

In the recent snow we have been searching for clues as to what animals are out and about. Tracks are a brilliant way to do this and can reveal the habits of some of the less frequently seen animals. We have seen evidence of Roe Deer, Fox, and many birds. One of the more exciting finds over the last week was Badger prints all the way along the boardwalk through the scrapes, giving us clues as to where these elusive animals visit and walk on their nocturnal excursions.

Just before Christmas, Ken had his camera out again and has captured four short clips of a Badger on the reserve, which can all be enjoyed in the video below.

Thank you Ken for your efforts in getting this brilliant footage and allowing us to use it on the blog.
