New Badger Cubs

There are two cubs at the sett this year. They've been above ground for about two weeks now, but they've stayed close to mum. She's been very secretive and kept them well clear of me. Now at last, they're starting to run off on their own and I'm getting better views of them. For the last few nights I've put out a dish of honey with the usual peanuts, in an attempt to draw them out of cover. Both cubs like the honey, but the adults ignore it - maybe they've been stung before!

I love the first cub's reaction when the second one turns up
