Not all of a badgers life is pleasant see short videos below


6th April 2016
The badger emergence is variable at the moment between 7.30pm and 11pm
One of our recent visitors reported a sighting of a lesser spotted woodpecker which surprised me, however the video below proves it

The greater spotted woodpecker is around twice the size of the lesser spotted woodpecker and has obvious wing marking differences to the lesser spotted woodpecker (see vide below of the greater spotted woodpecker)

2nd April 2016
The reason a badger is always on guard either in or outside the sett at this time of year when there is a possibility of cubs being in the sett is demonstrated in the short video below

1st April 2016
The closest badger to the camera ever and this is not an April fool joke

Below is a daylight badger looking/smelling around to see what is around before making an emergence

30th March 2016

How many stags are there in the herd of fallow deer across the valley from us this morning?

PLease note that “whitey” the albino is still with them!!

The badger emergence is now around 8pm

Our current visitors Bob & Lin spent half of yesterdays daylight hours watching a kingfisher fishing on our top pond (for sticklebacks) (photographs will be available next week)

Good sightings of buzzards and red kites enjoying free flight in the high winds.

a family of deer visited us recently.

The badgers are around their setts most of the time never leaving a sett unattended which is a sign of badger cubs being underground!!
