Midsummer evening walk to a Badger Set

 Light midsummer evenings are the best time to take a walk in the woods and watch badgers.
We saw 12 around our local set and they usually come out to forage for food around 9:00 p.m. so for a few weeks now it is easy to observe them.
They do not see very well so it is best to stand off the paths so they run straight past you rather than nearly running into you!
It is a magical time to go for a walk in the summer twilight anyway and you will probably hear more badgers than you see.
