When I went out to my car these evening I nearly tripped over a Badger that was snuffling around, just outside the back door. I hadn't seen one for a while and had got out of the habit of providing a regular supper, as when I have on several occasions the morning has revealed a very wet and soggy platter of drowned peanuts.
As well as the peanuts he also went round hoovering up some of the sunflower seeds that had spilt from my feeders during the gale force winds. We had gusts of up to around 71mph last night! In fact the wind was so noisy that Pam and I both found it hard to sleep. I don't think that I have ever heard the wind make such a continuous loud roar before. Back to our visitor. We both thought that he was looking rather thin, so I gave him a decent ration to help him fatten up.
