Our neighbourhood badger has been coming back every night. We've been trying to get him used to us and, more importantly, used to the flash of the camera. He comes so close to the house, and will look straight at us through the window. The first couple of times we took photos, he jumped up in the air and ran away, but he's getting the hang of it now.
In fact, we later discovered that there are two badgers visiting our garden. The second one follows a few steps behind, is considerably more shy, and a little smaller. I hope they're a couple; baby badgers would be an incredible sight. I haven't yet managed to get a photo of them both together, because Badger 2 is so shy. But at least we've got a couple of reasonably clear pictures.
