Father Christmas missed this one.
A look at a badger maybe thinking of using this sett for rearing her cubs next year
Round and round the walnut tree 4 of this years cubs spent their first hour above ground chasing each other around the walnut tree on Christmas Day/Evening
The badgers were emerged early last night and in force
The brave little male muntjac feeding on apples in daylight before they got frosted over last night
An unusual happening two adult muntjacs in the same place at the same time but NOT together
The badger emergence has come back to around 6pm for the first badger with others emerging up to about 8.30 the last one I see go back to the sett is around 4am
The fallow deer are around our orchard at 4pm or before and are now getting toward the end of eating the fallen apples! It is a big help to me them eating the fallen apples as it helps to stop the soil becoming acidic.
A good close up video of the albino fallow deer and some of her followers below.

My friend the largest of all the fallow deer stags that have visited College Barn Farm, (that I know of) has injured his front left leg
