Eric's Day Flashback - Badger Hunting.

This week the flashback comes from January 2011 and is called:

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.

I've heard that badgers can be VERY nasty! It's best to avoid them.

We have never encountered badgers.
A warm fire and treats sounds much more enticing!

You two look pretty fierce and regal patrolling out there. I can't even imagine because Bear Cat is scared of EVERYTHING. Even after spending the first 8 months of his life homeless ... he's still scared of birds and squirrels and ...

It's good to know where the badgers are, but best leave them be. A warm fire and nibbles are better.

A very nice adventure you two. That was a smart patrol of the farm as you checked on those badgers but knew when to return to the warmth and treaties. Yep purrfect
