New arrivals: Part 4

A pair of feeding badgers

The pair feeding on our lawn.

Badger feeding

Usually one comes first and is joined by the second badger later on.


First signs that something was afoot was that the compost fence kept getting knocked down. I thought it might be the local magpie flock so I pegged it down with some big tent pegs. It kept on getting knocked down and then I noticed it happened only at night. Not long after I saw a badger in the garden. A little while later a second one.

They are now frequent visitors to our garden, and come every night to eat the food I put out. They have built a toilet just below the garden at the bottom of the slope. Their tracks are easy to spot in the long grass and undergrowth around the house.

  1. Lovely, silent badgers… Woken up this morning by a screaming vixen in the front garden, too close, I was too sleepy to get up and look, I much prefer the badgers… If I could choose… wild life…
