Following on from my recent thread asking if your Fox numbers were down, like mine are... i.e. at an all time low in my memory.
The badger population around here has been climbing steadily over the last 30 odd years, from almost none to quite a few setts within a mile of my house. In fact, at one point the diggers had all but wiped them out.
However, now I'm seeing lots more badgers than ever, at all times of day and night and the population really looks to have mushroomed this past winter. I'm talking about proper Badger "touns" now; with teens, if not scores, of sows and piglets to a community
Are your badger numbers up too?
