WILDEN MARSH NATURE RESERVE’S NEWEST BADGER SETT
This is Wilden Marsh Nature Reserve’s newest badger sett. It is not the most salubrious of setts and is likely the home of a low-status bachelor badger. Dug in the open under low trees and surrounded by copious amounts of cow dung, the attraction must be ultra reasonable ground rent. I can’t see a self-respecting female badger being interested in nursing her cubs here. No warm sunsets for this sett’s occupier; it’s a dark, dismal place devoid of direct sunlight throughout the day and year. I have to say that it’s a busy, rowdy, and somewhat shabby area. All the best badger sett locations are taken and have sitting tenants in residence, so I expect it is a matter of “beggars can’t be choosers”.
