We had a badger encounter up close. We were stood trying to make out hares in the fading light far off in the distance in a field, when a badger came pootling down the woodland path towards us.
We stopped instantly as the badger came closer. “Is it going to go right past us” I thought and hoped, but it veered off and disappeared in a connecting field.
That wasn’t it oh no, on our way home we drove along side another badger on a quiet country road. Was a good night for badger.
Badgers are a rear sight, so to have one saunter towards you is a real treat.
