||I keep hearing about a badger extermination project going on. What is that about?

||It's about the powers that be thinking they know best. There's a Q&A article here - Link
A 16% reduction in bovine TB over 9 years? Hardly going to make a huge difference to anything is it - unless you're a badger of course :(

||Great photo captures, Pam. I had the usual raccoons and TWO skunks here tonight. Of course, I have never seen a badger. I doubt there are any here, and of course ours are different from yours, anyway.

||Hope it will make a return visit this evening. The garden does photograph well but it's not very big - the plan was for it to be easy to manage and plenty of cover for wildlife.
Marty, I really like the look of raccoons (I met one of those at close quarters once in Canada) but I know they can be pests. Skunks ...you can keep :-))

||How brilliant Pam! Lovely photos.
Parts of Cheshire and Shropshire have been vaccinating badgers to show there is an alternative.
