European Badgers
Tuesday 2nd November 2021 - I spent about 7 hours in Ron McCombe's terrific wildlife hide in Scottish Borders. Ron has set it up to bring European Badgers to the area. Takes patience as badgers can come at any time. Their sense of hearing is acute so you have to keep very still and quiet. Well worth contacting Ron McCombe and booking a slot. Or in his wildbirds hide. Both hides are heated and Ron gives very useful photography assistance.
Badgers came to the area , about 20 metres from me, about four times during the seven hours. Visits are slowing down as winter approaches.
For this visit. I used my new Canon 400mm prime lens. Loving the results it is giving. All the 42 images here are uncropped as from camera. Taking time to realise the lens is a prime and no zoom facility. Badgers at times were taking up the whole frame.
