The vegetation grows thick and fast during the growing season on Wilden Marsh Nature Reserve; it can easily hide our herd of rare breed cattle. The marsh badgers usually run for the hills and their summer setts in June: it is easier for them to forage there. They return to their marsh setts in October and November for the winter. This year, I have tried to encourage the cattle to graze around the marsh setts, and the badgers seem happy enough with my efforts to stay put for now. All the marsh setts are occupied, and new ones are under construction.
