Crane over the Goodwins

The on going saga of the raising of the WWII German Dornier Bomber ended this evening when the weather finally relented enough for the crane to lift the bomber from 15 metres down on the Goodwin Sands.

It is quite a long way from the Monument, but that seemed to be the appropriate place to watch from. The full story is here.
A fascinating couple of hours watching the coming and goings in the garden. The bold ginger tailed Badger that has a love of peanuts enough to overcome his shyness was around fairly early on. A couple of times one of the local foxes popped in, but they are extremely wary and didn't stay for a photo shoot.

A second Badger, that had been messing around down the bottom of the garden decided to come and join Ginger-tail for a peanut, but never came quite as close.

This was is quite definitely as sow, as can be seen above, but I haven't yet been able to see the relevant bits that would make me sure that Ginger-tail is a young Boar.
