30 Nights Wild, night 11

A really strong wind tonight unsettled me as well as the badgers. My high seat, a ladder with a small platform at the top, leans against a large birch tree which was creaking and swaying erratically with every gust.

Is it safe to come out yet?

Top boar Jeremy looked out of the sett at about 9:20, but it was cub Nicola who ventured out first about 20 minutes later. Jeremy and the other cub, Nigel, came out to join her and yearling Boris turned up soon afterwards. They had their peanuts and honey, interrupted many times by gusts of wind that sent them rushing back to the sett. The cubs played a bit and then they all set off across the woods at about 10:40.
