Badger Close Up

Badger Close Up. A close encounter with an adult badger as it stares down the lens, trying to work out what the clicking noise is. Derbyshire, Peak District National Park. Despite the incredibly harsh summer we’ve had this year, this family of badgers seem to have done very well. During the harshest weather I had been putting out a small amount of food and water at this sett and several others which really seemed to have helped.

Badger Close Up- 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.
