30 Nights Wild, night 28

It had been cold, wet and windy all day and the evening was no better. I arrived at about 8:45, set up the dome hide and put out some peanuts, in heavy rain.

The two cubs did not let me down, they were out within five minutes. They rushed back to the sett whenever there was a particularly strong gust of wind, but kept coming back. After 20 minutes they'd had enough and returned to the sett. I packed up and was walking back to the car when an incoming badger crossed the path ahead of me. It was my shortest ever badger watch, at about 35 minutes.
