Badgers begin their birthing season in February and spend the first month exploring the underground tunnels of their sett. Although still very young, badger cubs will start to make their first appearances above ground around April time. Keep an eye out for our black and white striped friends whilst out on a woodland walk – but remember to keep your distance, as mum won’t be far away, foraging for food!
Here are a few handy tips to help you identify a badger sett:
– Badger holes are 20-30cm in diameter, wider than they are tall and shaped like a ‘D’ on its side.
– A network of broad paths often leads to badger setts. Fresh bedding may be found outside holes, especially in winter, and old bedding can be seen in spoil heaps.
– Coarse black and white hairs can be found in freshly dug soil or roots.
Don’t forget to stay as quiet as possible.
