Badger watch!

No, this post has nothing to do with Alistair Darling ;-)

Went on a "real" badger watch this evening out near Ratho ... details at the bottom of this page.

It was really mesmerising - had to sit quietly for over an hour (junior did very well!) before the badgers emerged from their set, but thereafter it was an absolute pleasure being able to watch them play and run around the surrounding area.

The evening ended with the complete family of badgers - six in total I think? - bounding across the neighbouring field, and into the adjoining section of wood :-))

YOU sat quiet for over one hour.

WOW! that takes some believing.

Wait until the badgers take up residence in your allotment, plenty water and food !!!

The Lord Provost will just need to badger him to be quite at meetings now.
