Site 4 has turned up some surprises. As mentioned in the last entry, footage of badger behaviour, as such, has been limited as yet; though the sett itself seems to attract other animals too. Below, a frequently-visiting rat can be seen catching something as he walks around the burrow.
Foxes were seen to visit site 2/3 on a previous occasion, and here we see more activity on the 'site 4 side' of the sett. Note the limp of the second fox as it walks in front of the camera.
But the last visitor seen at site 4 was completely unexpected: a muntjac deer sniffing around the burrow itself; just passing through, it seems. In a month of filming at site 4, this is the only sighting of a deer, though it is enough for us to set up elsewhere in the coming weeks and months to find further detail of where these deer live and forage, and how they behave when undisturbed.
