2016 Notes

March 21st 2016
The badger emergence is around 7.15pm
The badgers have been taking copious amounts of straw down into their setts which is a good indicator of badger cubs being present, together with the fact that my cameras show the presence of an adult badger being in or around the setts at all times, the guard duty is shared between the 4 adult occupants!

In the video below are a covey of red legged partridges passing the camera, it is the biggest covey of partridges I have ever seen on our farm.
