Badger Hunting.

We have made mum walk down by the badger setts. We are not allowed to go in them because badgers have big scary teeth.

See how the grass and leaves are flattened and dead where we are standing. That is because Mr and Mrs Badger walk up and down here all the time.

Eric: ::sniff sniff:: Yup I can smell them.

Where I am walking is the edge of the bank but you can't see it because of the trees. I am looking through the trees to see if I can see them. The badgers have dug their setts into the bank. You can see the soil from one of the entrances in the top right corner.

Flynn: I think I hear movement. They must be home.

Eric: In that case we had better go. You know mum doesn't want us coming face to face with them. So off we went back to the fire and treaties.

  7. Be careful boys! Those badgers are very scary critters! Mousies are much safer to investigate.

  8. I know badgers are vicious, but I can't think about them without it bringing to mind The Wind in the Willows and the adventures of Mole, Toad and Badger which my father used to read to me at bedtime:-)

  14. Äiti wants to know if you do the badger dance ('badger badger badger badger...mushroom...badger badger badger....' which sounds silly but was a famous website once.). We think you are really brave to hunt badgers as they are big b*st*rds with teeth and claws to match. We are impressed that you are monitoring their intrusions into your kingdom but please be careful!

  26. We would have loved to join you looking for the badger family but we're sure mum wouldn't have let us come along - something to do with elf and safety - whoever they are!!

  27. That was a great adventure, boys! And we think adventures always end best when no one bleeds. So, success!

  31. Fire and treatsies are better than old badgers anyway. Still, it looked like a great hunt!
    Have a great weekend, boys!

  32. I think you have done the right thing. Your mum is sensible because those badgers can be nasty .. Stay by the fire with treats as well. Result.. Hugs GJ xx

  33. Yes, good thing you're Mom was with you on this sniffing session. You would be but a snack to a badger -- they are very vicious!

    It's cool that you're getting out and about in the fields already, though. All your snow is gone -- we can but wish.

  34. Good idea to go home and enjoy treaties by the fire. Those fellows can be fierce! We know you are very brave boys but do take care. No one wants to face a clan of startled badgers

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh you two boys are smart and brave. WE are glad you didn't look any further for those badgers, they are not very nice to meet.
