On the far side of the Tweed we found a large badger sett.
It had several cavernous tunnels worn smooth as pottery by decades of use and tracks leading from it that were pushed 9 inches deep by the passage of generations of heavy clawed feet.
The badgers were very inquisitive and were wary at first of the camera but soon moved in for a closer look and a nibble. The cameras also caught some lovely video of a fox hunting rabbits and the badgers coming and going and going about their routine. Follow the embedded links for some YouTube videos.
We set a camera at the mouth of two tunnels and captured these photos over a few nights.
We also found an otter scent marking spot by the edge of the Tweed. We set a camera overlooking it. More photos and video of what we found can be found in the next article.
