MOST OF THE WEB CAMS ARE NOW WORKING. THOSE THAT ARE NOT WILL BE GOING TOMORROW.

A elderly Gentleman came today, to holiday on the farm for a week. He has been watching the web cams since CJ Bird foods linked to Denbury Farm, getting on for two years ago. He like most of our visitors, came for the wild life. His hobby is wildlife photography and he is going to photograph the wild life at Denbury.

Whilst showing him the Badgers hide this evening, he mentioned seeing a Badger mating session last year, on camera one. I did forget that I had recorded the mating on a CCTV recording machine. It is stored on a hard drive. If I can find some one to save it to a DVD I will show it on the web site. At the time I recorded it I made numerous enquiries of any other recordings of Badgers Mating, I found none. The BBC did not know of any footage either. I did a lot of recording last year, If I can get it all downloaded and it looks interesting, I will get a DVD made.

Going back to last night diary about Wasp stings. The reason I came to farm and live in Somerset, was that my family holidays were taken on a farm in the area. I wont fly and I am not one to lay on a beach. A farm holiday was a nice break from London, and the children enjoyed the countryside. On one of my holidays I went for a drink in the local pub with the farmer, with whom we stayed. I had a pint of beer, on bending my arm picking it up to drink, a Wasp got caught in the joint of my elbow, that started to squash the Wasp. The Wasp went down fighting, the sting made me move so fast, that the full pint went in one direction, soakeding at least six people, two of which spilt their drinks. That Wasp cost me a lot of pain and a few drinks in the bargain.

I cant believe it, isn’t it always the way. The web cams are down, and as I am writing the Diary at 10.pm two Badger Cubs came out of the sett and started to play, believe me it is pure fun, and now their mother has come out to join in the fun. I am pleased for those who have never seen the cubs playing. The cubs are quite big, I really don’t know if one is not the one that has been coming out for the past few weeks. Hopefully you will see them tomorrow.
