Badgers

Badgers are amazing creatures, but are really skittish and can be easily spooked. Their sense of smell is amazing but their sight is appalling, which means as long as you’re still and downwind you have a good chance of watching them.

A friend of mine told me about a sett he knew of on his land, and I was lucky enough to get a shot of one the juveniles sprinting around. There were 5 or 6 of them that decided to come out and forage about 3 mins after I found a spot to sit. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to set up the camera properly and this was one of the few workable shots I could get! Now that I know where they are, I’m going to go back better prepared!

Beautiful Creatures.
