A Badger in my Semi-Urban Garden

December 06, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I have been aware for some years that badgers occasionally wander down the path by my garden.  Last year an attempt to capture them using a trailcam yielded lots of cats, squirrels and a fox.  I had used as bait some peanut butter spread on a rock.  This year having had an encounter with the badger I decided to have another go, this time using peanuts scattered near the badger's door onto the path.  The first day yielded cats, the second squirrels and then this morning I noticed all the peanuts had gone.  I was delighted to find a huge looking badger on the webcam and surprised to see it was captured at only 8pm last night.  The plan now is to try to get to know its movements a little better and then figure out if I have a chance of getting some more attractive pictures.

How lovely to have this wild creature sharing my garden.  :-)
