Badger Badger Badger

While walking around outside the office last Monday morning, I heard a snuffling behind me. I turned around to see a fully-grown badger about 15 feet away from me snuffling and shuffling along the edge of the lawn near the road. I was able to walk along near it as it hunted for small things in the leaf litter. The videos didn’t come out that well unfortunately – but it was nice to be close enough to the animal that I could see the eyes. I think that the fact I was backlit by the office yard lights, and that I was downwind of it helped to mask my presence as well. It took a car passing along the road to spook it into running into the hedge and away..
