Cheer up

Seems we have many negative/moaning threads on here.

Hope this cheers people up. These pictures made me smile:

Re: Cheer up

Cheered me up. Alas, wifey will not let me have one.
Off to Spain in a few minutes, lovely warm weather, as opposed to my trip to Scotland

Re: Cheer up

We get up to four badgers visiting the garden, and we leave dried dog food and peanuts out for them. I've a cheap night vision camera to capture their antics. Here's one of the recent clips:

I like the way that the adult is trying to ignore the youngsters pushing and shoving.

I suffer from wild rabbits digging up my lawn.
I certainly don't want a badger size hole in it though

Jim,

We have them to but I have only ever caught one adult on our trail camera.

Our main pests are Muntjac Deer.

Re: Cheer up

We were in holiday in a static caravan at Swanage a few years ago. It was mid August, and totally dark at night which is a novelty for us. We woke at about 2.00 am to watch the Perseid meteor shower only to see an adult Badger calmly walk past us with two young.
