The Badger feeding web cam has been very busy over the past few months. A Vixen with 3 cubs has been feeding there. They wait to pounce on the food as soon as it has been put down. The Badgers have been coming out to feed very late so to make sure they get some of the feed we have to put it out a lot later. We have only seen 6 Badgers this year although over the past few weeks its been only been 4.
Unfortunately there has been no cubs this year, it does happen some years and it could be with the visiting fox family they are living in a satellite sett to keep the cubs out of any danger of the fox family. Also visiting the feeding area is a big dog fox who tries to chase away every other animal feeding. The badgers usually manage to keep him under control. We have also had a lot of deer visiting the feed area this year, it has been since we started to put corn feed down. It has mostly been Red Deer, but now and then the Roe Deer come where it was always the Roe.
