Badgers

This nocturnal mammal is very common on the nature reserve with at least 12 setts being inhabited. Many of the setts have been used for decades and the badgers will have overlapping territories. Badgers will travel to feed on small mammals, frogs, insects, slugs, earthworms as well as plants and fruits.

A great time to see badgers is during the summer when adults are actively feeding their young. For more information about our badger watching events click here.
