This badger is the largest of three siblings living in this particular set.

Taken today in the forest - a pretty gloomy but humid day. These spotted us before we spotted them so these were the best pics I could manage at long range.

This picture was taken on the same evening as the previous photo on the blog. It was pretty difficult to get all three in the same shot - this was the best of the bunch.

This is one of three badgers I was able to photograph this evening in the Forest. It would be about 6 months old. The mother didn't make an appearance but I can't complain. The little ones were great fun to watch.
Location withheld.

Beyond the Forest of Dean...

I haven't uploaded so many pictures lately as many of my photographs lately have been taken elsewhere in Gloucestershire and beyond. The photos taken outside of the Forest of Dean are all visible at Flickr.

One of a number of stone carvings in the Forest of Dean. This one overlooks a wide view as shown in the previous post.

Looking north-east from the edge of the Forest of Dean, overlooking Mitcheldean in the centre foreground of the image. May Hill is behind that (with a small clump of trees on top), with the Malvern Hills and beyond in the distance.
