FC: BADGER WATCH
1: We travelled to the Isle of Wight and stayed at a fairly remote country house hotel called 'The Hermitage' on St. Catherine's Down near Ventnor. | In the evenings, the staff put some bread outside the kitchen and a couple of chairs for us to sit on whilst we waited for the badgers to arrive.
2: Out of the dark they came, bright eyes shining, intent on grabbing their treat of bread
5: So busy eating or grabbing a mouthful to take back to their young, they didn't seem too bothered that we were watching.
7: The badgers visited each night for the three nights we stayed at 'The Hermitage' | I've never been so close to a badger before!
8: Should a badger cross the path which thou hast taken,then Good luck is thine, so it be said Beyond the luck of men. folklore
