Armed with a jug full of peanuts I came bimbling around the corner and was a little taken aback to be met by a badger at the top of the stairs. We stood and looked at each other for a moment and I had a small curse that both the cameras that live in the car are currently on the coffee table at home. The badger then went down the stairs and under the decking so I put some peanuts out and watched it for a good fifteen minutes, sitting about ten foot away. It will be interesting to see what is on that trail camera tomorrow. The badger is lame on its near fore which is presumably why it is coming in in daylight and avoiding the others, hopefully it will recover with the help of some easy access food.
