A Great Friend in Tough Times

Last weekend I had to leave the badger sett for a couple of nights, the first time since the badger cull was announced.  Our business was in London where we also took the opportunity to pay our respects at the Cenotaph.  You might recall a few weeks ago I told you about a Stag that was looking over the badger sett during day light hours, the Barn Owls are regular over the sett at night, however, for the last six weeks or so, another old friend of mine, The Fox, has been paying regular visits on a nightly basis.  It is really quite amusing.  He will watch them from 2am until about 6am. It’s as if he is counting them, each and every one of them back into the sett.  And then just before first light, he walks slowly over to the sett, looking down the sett’s entrances, almost as if to say “Another day safe my friends.” He then disappears into the thick woodland until the following early hours.

So in a funny sort of way, although I had to leave the badgers, I felt very reassured.  The badgers were in the finest of hands.
