The badger emergence is anywhere between 6pm and 10.45 pm and is not weather related as a badger emerged early last evening into a howling wet gale!!(see video below)
Do Badgers have ghosts? If not what have they cast around the trees?????
The badger emergence starts at 5.30 pm for the early badgers and up to 3.30 am for the later lonesome badgers.

A Jay visited our running water hide recently looking in very good condition.
The earliest badger emergence for months, the “little badger” arrived outside our “running water hide at 5.23pm last evening (just before the rain started) and moved the stone cover off one of the feeding bowls! The stone cover would have been close to the weight of the “little badger” (see video below)
The two badgers in the video below arrived an hour later which was an hour too late!!!
I cleared our Kestrel nesting box of Pidgeon nests yesterday along with the “Old Barn Owl box” and I thought while I had the sun over my shoulder I would clean the “little Owl” nesting box out as well. I HAD A MASSIVE SUPRISE WHEN I LIFTED THE ROOF OF IT

Two badgers meet
Another albino fallow deer?
It is a delight for me to see the deer enjoying what would have been a wasted apple crop, during the day there are redwings etc all helping eat the fallen apples.
Last evening was particularly busy
What happens after the badger in the video below finishes the peanuts?
