Badger fights, and that's amongst themselves!

I thought that my method of putting out two helpings of peanuts was working well last night.

Both of the regular Badgers arrived last night, although I think I may have missed an earlier quick visit as one of the helpings looked as if it had be partly eaten.

"Scar-face" was still eating when the other one finished, but it was quickly muscled out of the way after a quick dispute. A bit of pushing and shoving did carry on but it was obvious who was boss. When I looked at the pictures I could see that "Scar-face" was sporting another facial wound. When they left the lit area there was a sudden burst of sound, a very loud jittering noise almost a scream went on for several seconds before I saw them run past. When they got to the back garden they tripped a security light and I could see then running quickly across the lawn. I couldn't tell if one was chasing the other or if they were just both hurrying away.

Tonight "Scar-face" turned up alone and it was obvious that it has been wounded again. It doesn't seem to affect it going about it's business but I felt as if I wanted to get to a vet and get the wounds cleaned and dressed but I presume it will heal up all right.

Moths, Just four moths of three species so far this wee, one ech of March Moth and Common Quaker and two Hebrew Characters.
