Many years ago when I was still at school I gained the nickname Badgerbob as I was a mad keen Badger watcher, going out in all weathers and all times of the year.
I used to keep notes of every evening from that first ever sighting for myself, February 19th 1974 at 6pm at a set near Offham. I've seen mating pairs twice over that time and lots of other activities and probably over 200 sightings.
Since then time has got much more difficult and it has been a long time since my last serious Badger watch, so when a good friend suggested calling over to watch the Badgers in his garden I jumped at the chance.
Many thanks to Dave for the opportunity and an evening I won't ever forget!!
