After 5 minutes spent eating peanuts this young male climbed up the banking and disappeared off down a well worn badger track into a neighbouring field.
 A short video. Really impressed with the D7200’s video although the cameraman needs a bit more practice 🙂

Not a Badger! Woodpigeon taking a keen interest in the peanuts left out for the Badgers

And finally after a wait of over an hour with nothing apart from the local Tawny Owl 3 more Badgers.

Why they need to be culled in order to support intensive farming is ridiculous. In a country where a third of the population are obese and literally dying of over consumption there’s simply no need for our wildlife to be persecuted.
