Badgers & Foxes

Below is a bit more of the interaction the Trailcam picked up outside the sett on Monday evening.

The first sequence shows an interesting bit of heirarchy. A Red Fox joins a feeding Badger and is soon shown who is 'top dog'! There follows a sequence with two Red Foxes where one is obviously more dominant. A Red Fox then feeds but soon disappears when it realises a Badger is on the way home!

In the next sequence, 2 Badgers - I reckon they might be last year's cubs - engage in what looks like an aggressive encounter but, a few moments later, they are involved in mutual grooming before the one disappears out of shot and the other chills out!
