Adult Badger Portrait 2
An adult badger emerges from the sett in the last rays of golden evening light. Derbyshire, Peak District National Park. The adult badgers tend to be much more cautious than the inquisitive cubs. It’s always a risk taking a photo, as even the sound of the shutter can sometimes send them scurrying back underground.
Adult Badger – About Badgers:
Badgers are largely nocturnal and extremely shy but remain one of the UK’s favourite mammals. Highly sociable creatures, they live together in large underground setts, typically with many entrances. Many believe the best way to identify an active sett is by the entrance hole, as badgers typically favour a characteristic sideways ‘D’ shape entrance. However the entrance shape can be misleading as many animals can occupy old setts. Badgers, foxes, rabbits and even otters have all been known to take over each others old burrows. Actually one of the best ways to tell is by fresh piles of dirt outside, Badgers are voracious diggers and are constantly expanding their setts.
