It is full of what appears to be little spiders which are clumped together in the centre like a little ball, if you disturb them they fly apart like this.

I have been watching carefully around the old sett because something has been doing a lot of digging and there is spoil all over and it extends back from the hole by about 5 to 6 ft.

There is also a depression in it which could be the pheasant I caught on camera having a dust bath.

There is definate signs of activity there, but have not caught any more Badgers on film. There was a bone at the entrance so I guess it could be a fox but doesn't pong enough!

Have tried the peanuts, hence the pheasant but I think I might be scaring the Badgers off in some way.

I'm not 100% sure it is the badger doing the digging! but I will keep watching!

We also have partridge here, which I have seen but not caught on the camera!

What is strange is I haven't seen a rabbit in ages, we did have loads.

It might be Myxomatosis I suppose!

Not sure how likely it is that Badgers have reduced the population

We are definately missing rabbits, I wonder if that is a sign the badgers are back? Plus the digging!

Although I had heard other animals share the burrows!

Interesting pictures Julie :) I'm afraid I don't know enough to answer your questions. Are those web things spider nests?

I think so, someone has told me they are called "Pisaura mirabilis" also known as Nursery Web spider because of the protective 'tents'.

I've been told if I approach carefully i should see the mother on guard near the webbing.

I shall have another look.

Just gone to collect the camera after a few days to see what I had managed to get and was a bit surprised to see it was in a bit of a mess, covered in mud etc.

I thought, " I wonder what did that!" It was clean before and new looking but suddenly seemed scruffy looking with mud all over it!

I had put it lower down to capture any animals at eye level!

Summat was up!

           

So I had a look



Well! I didn't expect this!





I'll put them in order  but will leave out quite a few ( there are lots of ones with whited out ears )
