The Finnish Ulos lountoo programme series managed to record some excellent images of badgers at Kuniukaansaare close to Helsinki where last year  a trail camera recorded the badgers during a whole year. To the joy of badger friends three cubs too appeared this spring. When installing the camera the producers of the series had been hoping that there would be cubs in the den but it was no certainty since badgers do not have offspring each year. Through the TV series the badgers became quite famous in Finland last year, as well as the Kuninkasaari,  a territory that together with Vallisaari near  Helsinki was earlier closed to civilians. It is now for the first time open to the public, beginning in mid-May this year. About 300 000 visitors are expected during this summer.

The two minutes long video summary of the badgers is in Finish but the  images speak for themselves:
