In recent weeks our visiting Badgers have been conspicuous by their absence.
The peanuts I leave out would sometimes remain uneaten and on other occasions I'm pretty sure that a fox was taking advantage of them.
We've had so much rain over the winter which meant I couldn't really leave the camera out overnight in an attempt to see what was happening.
However, over the the last month or so an individual creature has been putting in an appearance but this required me to have a look outside every few minutes.
Last Friday was a clear and dry evening so I left the camera out and these two were good enough to turn up along with company.

thanks for the great pic Carruthers!


side note, wtf is wrong with your camera/enclosure that it can't be left out in case it rains?

Over this winter we have had an astonishing amount of rain.
On more than one occasion a month's worth landed in the space of twenty-four hours.
The seal around the two halves of the camera is good, and certainly water resistant, but I would be reluctant to describe it as waterproof.
For that reason I have erred on the side of caution when deciding whether to leave the camera out overnight.
Additionally, the lens always seems to attract the biggest drops of rain!

There are a whole bunch of different critters we call badgers, including the ones we see here (American) and the ones I'm glad we don't (Honey).
Yours are weird.

I've mentioned before how surprised I was to find foxes, raccoons, skunks, possums and cats all in the same frame from my sneaky cam.

I used to give bats a pass because mosquitoes. Now between Ebola and corona virus they are on my “do not call” registry.

I've been leaving out peanuts nightly for three years to attract our local Badgers to the garden but it's pretty clear that they have been visiting for much longer.

A few nights ago my camera recorded an adult and cubs for the first time although the picture was less than perfect.

We did a bit better last night...

I still haven't seen them in the flesh, but you can't have everything.

We followed an eagle in our car for about a mile on the way to work this morning, that was cool, but no picture--driving--sorry.

But I did capture this little guy as he was scampering off to find a different place to finish his nap. Hang out in the yard, be my guest. Hang out in the house, be my trophy.
