2012 Notes

The badger emergence started around 6 pm with badgers “to and fro” up until about 3 am on what was a very foggy -5c night.

The dominant boar badger seems to be the last to check out the peanut reservoir around midnight only to find it empty… maybe he is not looking for peanuts  but checking out who has been on his territory.

I am pleased to report that the barn owl box that I finished building about a month ago is now in position thanks to Lincoln (my contractor) who makes driving a digger (or any other machine ) look like a work of art.

Lincoln dug a hole with his smallest mini digger and erected the barn owl box into position with the digger yesterday afternoon, the whole operation went according to plan with no slips or adjustments needed with the absolute minimum of equipment. (click on the image to full size it)
