A very wild night indeed: cold (1 degree or so) and very windy. Very little sign of the badgers, apart from one rear view of one walking back to the sett at 2:18 and another walking into the woods,and not returning, apparently, at 3:16. Two dishes were refilled but only one was found and that wasn't finished.
Something about the animal captured in the photo below said "visitor" to me, but is it even a badger, and if not what else could it be?
Strange how the infrared cameras can ignore badgers and not mice. Perhaps badgers being large and well insulated and mice being small and "hot" against a cold background has something to do with it.
Is that a badger?</font size>
