Young badger near Stoodleigh, Tiverton, Devon.
My entry for mycountryfriday: I thought of war memorials, of football shirts, of flags but in the end I plumped for what I love about the country I live in - the wildlife! I've just spent a lovely evening taking picture with Devon Badger Watch - anyone else who wants to photograph wild badgers with them should see: http://www.devonbadgerwatch.co.uk/

fantastic image mate I love it, I actually saw a badger from my bedroom window one night, I live in Oxford, and at first thought it was a big cat.......sort of cool where I am I suppose I have also seen a pair of foxes........thing is this sort of thing drives me nuts because for nights afterwards I sit by my window armed with cameras, long lenses, and a flask of coffee and see nothing lol well done mate

Craig the wolf walks (and they do special events for photographers too!) look fascinating - I'd love to do one when I have the chance. Thanks for alerting me to them. Have you done one? Any photos?

Wow i never observed the "blaireau" badger ( thanks i learnd a new word )
i think in my country it begins to be rare...
encore une espèce en voie de disparition ? i don't know.....
May 27 2007 09:42 GMT ThorBeverley PRO
Thanks PaP67 - I first learnt the French word "blaireau" through an interest in cycling as it was Bernard Hinault's nickname.
The guide at the Badger Watch site said that in England badgers live in large family groups due to the sheer number of earthworms (their favourite food) caused by the wetter climate, in France (which is drier) they tended to be more solitary. Perhaps this makes them harder to see in France?

Great shot of the badger! I have only seen a badger dead, in the middle of the road. :(

dear Thor, thanks for your reply, your badgers shots are SUPER!

Amazing shot! Are they not nocturnal? I like all your nature shots, and feel inspired!
Jun 16 2007 21:49 GMT ThorBeverley PRO
Yes they are nocturnal therese - the badger hide is under trees so they come out a bit earlier (around 7.00pm) and the Badger Watch people feed peanuts which badgers love. And I used a flash and they didn't run away!
All round it was a priviledge to see them.
