BADGERS

Wimpole has about five badger setts on the estate, the sett at Cobbs Wood has been photographed daily/nightly for a period of three months. During this period four separate litters were seen, two groups of four, one of three and a single cub, there may have been more families out of range of the infra red video cameras.

You can see by the size of the sett and one of the well worn tracks in the photograph just how many animals there are, they range out in all direction for about 2000 metres.
