In my vacations I spent a lot of time outside to observe wild animals in our area. (That's why I had not so much time to watch the webcams :whistling:
Nearly every evening I saw the young foxes

Two times I observed the beaver 05:00h in the morning. It was one of the highlights for me.

And two times I saw some badgers

Thanks for all your great pictures that you share here :loveshower:

Manu, this badger also seems to be a young one. Or am I wrong?

Bea: They're three badgers and I assume it is a mother with two cubs. But it's difficult to see because they run like a rocket from their den into the field of sunflowers. BTW: I don't know till yet where their den is exactely. This evening we will try to catch them once again.

Yes, I read this in books, but I never see it in real live.
This is the place where the foxes and badgers lives. It's really close to the village and only a few of bushes.

@Spatz: I can't tell you exactely how long I'm waiting. I spent nearly every second day 2 hours there waiting in the evening for the foxes. And for a long time I didn't noticed they're badgers too :blush: . The badgers I saw now for three times (every time only a second because they ran so fast) and two times I was a lucky one to catch them with the cam.
