More badgers on BadgerCam
This time there were more badger photos than I have ever had in one night on the trail camera and more badgers in the photos than I have seen before. Usually they turn up one at a time but several times there were three here. Because one badger looks much like another (to me) it is difficult to say how many individuals there were.
Getting them to stand in the right place was as much a challenge as ever. There were many more photos than shown here - most of half a badger or much too close to the camera and overexposed and out of focus. However, they also often got it right.
As usual, the Maltesers were much appreciated.
Badger do get itchy so several were having a good scratch.
These two were having a bit of a wrestling match.
It is a pity I can't see them like this in real time but the camera gives us a very privileged insight into their lives.
