What an incredible sight

There we were in the middle of St Leonards, on the balcony, enjoying the night air. We heard a rustle across the road and saw not one, not two but three badgers jump over the fence and run down our street into the church yard. I didn't know you could get badgers this close to the sea.

Hello and greetings Fazziebucket
These two look quite risky. I hope you did not get too close to them

Oh, how neat. We've never seen a badger in person ... in fur ... whatever.

These look young, Faz! Maybe they don't know about digging so close to sea!

Whoohoooo Badgers! They is our state animal. Our main state university mascot is a badger, Bucky Badger!

Mum remembers being down in your area and seeing signs warning about badgers. She wishes she could have gotten a picture, but the motor coach was going too fast!

Badgers, how lovely. They're supposed to be quite shy animals, aren't they? You are fortunate to have spotted them, Faz.
