Badgers in the Garden!

at my lovely in-laws

by Martin Garner

I have had the privilege of watching Badger sets at dusk and the rare encounter during normal birding activity. More often, unfortunately, I see Badgers as road-side casualties. However since Sharon’s parent (my in-laws) George and Val moved house a couple of years ago, Badgers have become easier to see. Indeed every evening between one and three badgers wanders through their back garden, under a side gate, across the front of the house and straight over a road.

We guess this is a long-held, night-time route passed on to succeeding generation over many years.

The Badgers have literally walked under a chair I was sat on.

Here’s one from last night from the room we are staying in:


and across the front garden and over the road (scary moment!)
