A brave (hungry) badger

My wife found this hole down the drive yesterday and asked if I'd been digging up a wasp's nest.

I was a bit surprised by her question as she knows how much I dislike being stung. Closer inspection revealed this...

The wasps were not happy about this state of affairs so I'm staying well away for the time being. I assume at some point they'll vacate their nest and I'll fill the hole in then. A quick Google search suggests the likely culprit will be a hungry badger.

  • The Badger may very well return tonight image

    I would be keeping a regular eye out for its return.

    Do you have any Apples or other fruit to put out for it. Sultanas perhaps or a couple of cooked off sausages!!!

    THE SAME THING HAPPENED HERE A FEW WEEKS AGO. THIS WAS A BUMBLEBEE NEST.

    I KNOW IT WAS THE BADGER BECAUSE HE WAS CAUGHT ON TRAIL CAM.

    I'm sure the badger(s) will return. They're in the garden most nights. I was told there are 3 setts in the area. There are fallen apples to eat at the back end of the garden at the moment and in spring they do a bit of digging in the garden but not too much damage.
