Compilation of European Badgers Caught on Trail Cam at Sett Entrance in Fall

This is the first video I produced which contains animal footage only, without my talking. I also kept the original audio recorded by the trail camera, without using a music track. If it looks like it’s more appreciated than the way I made my previous videos, I will make more of these. The video is … Continue reading “Compilation of European Badgers Caught on Trail Cam at Sett Entrance in Fall”

My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 11

The forest where I live is not all that big. It’s about 10km by 6km in size, which is not large enough for large predatory animals, like the bears, lynx or wolves. There is a more expansive forest about 30km from me, which is more than a 100km across, and that’s already large enough so … Continue reading “My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 11”

My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 10

The dominant feature of Episode Ten of My Adventures at the Injured Badger Hole is a loud roar of an elusive animal. I speculate in the video that it could be a deer, as roe deer (Capreolus Capreolus) are known to bark like that, but alarm calls made by red foxes (Vulpes Vulpes) can also … Continue reading “My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 10”

My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 09

Day 13 at the injured badger hole turned out to be really nippy. With temperatures at -10 degrees Celsius and a heavy fog shrouding the area and thus blocking the sun, video recording with my palm sized Canon camera was a challenge. There’s no way to operate the camera with gloves on, and without gloves, … Continue reading “My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 09”

My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 08

Almost two weeks into my Adventures at the Injured Badger Hole, the reality really starts to sink it – there most likely is no badger anymore. As much as it tears my heart to admit it, the chance of the furry friend having made it are next to none. Due to his debilitating injury, the … Continue reading “My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 08”

My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 07

After finding out the European Badger (Meles Meles) at the sett #2 is injured, I had spent 8 consecutive days (seven nights) bringing food to his sett in an effort to help him survive the looming winter. Unfortunately, so far the efforts have been fruitless. Because the injured badger’s situation was an emergency, I had … Continue reading “My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 07”

My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 06 (Badger Pair SPECIAL)

Eight days after tending exclusively to the injured badger, I took a hike to a more remote part of the forest where a sett (networks of tunnels and living quarters dug up by badgers) inhabited by a pair of European Badgers is located. In this, special episode of My Adventures at the Injured Badger Hole … Continue reading “My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 06 (Badger Pair SPECIAL)”

Episode Five of My Adventures at the Injured Badger Hole consists of two days at the sett of the injured badger. Day Five at the Injured Badger Hole On Day Five, I encountered a Roe Deer (Capreolus Capreolus) on my way to the badger’s burrow.

My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 04

On the fourth day of my ongoing mission to save the life of an injured badger I return to his sett (network of tunnels and holes in the ground), in hopes that he had come out the previous night and had some of the food I had left for him. So far, after he was … Continue reading “My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 04”

My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 03

Having seen that the injured badger did not come out of the burrow the first night I left the food for him there, I returned to his sett (the actual name for the network of tunnels dug by badgers to live in) with more food. Because I live a simple life in the woods, I … Continue reading “My Adventures at Injured Badger Hole – Episode 03”
