Last Sunday I spent the evening watching badgers in deepest-darkest Dorset.
The farmer who owns this land has set up a hide for people who want to watch the badgers. He also puts some very tempting peanuts down for them! Every night they come out of their sett and wander down to the peanut-field in front of the hide.
It was wet, cold and generally a bit rubbish for badgers…. but we were lucky.
We ended up seeing three badgers. The footage is pretty “damp” looking (as it’s through rain-covered glass) but they did come out in broad daylight (about 7.30pm) so we still managed to get a good look at them.
I will try to go back later in the year to see the cubs and to take some “better” video.
