Reconnecting with the badgers

Postby Appletonwildlifediary » Thu Jan 26, 2017 8:26 pm

The badgers haven't been very active lately with all the cold weather but the trail camera filmed all of them so now I know they are all ok and surviving the winter.

Polecat, badgers and a Fox

Postby Appletonwildlifediary » Thu Feb 09, 2017 4:47 pm

'I was really excited and surprised to find a clip of a Polecat on my trail camera. I have seen a couple of Polecats dead on the road a few miles from my house, but I didn’t know one lived so close.'
