FACTS

This webcam only operates around dusk in the South West of England.

The badger cam has been set up by Andrew Cooper, one of Britain's most distinguished and influential television producers.

Webcams have been installed at his Devon farm to bring pictures of its wild residents to you over the Internet as part of the Wildlink project.


Wildlink aims to promote the importance of farm land for wildlife and people by providing an electronic field study centre.

BADGER FACTFILE
Most badgers have a characteristic black and white striped face with small white-tipped ears and a grey body.
The badger is a stocky animal, being about 750mm in length (from head to tail), with a 150mm tail, once fully grown. .

The weight of an adult badger varies throughout the year - depending on how much fat it has laid down for the winter months. In spring an adult badger will have an average weight of 8 to 9 kg, rising to 11 to 12 kg in autumn.

Badgers are very tidy animals. They spend a lot of time transporting grass, straw, moss or bracken to and from their sleeping chambers deep in the sett.

Setts are handed down like family houses from generation to generation, and the badger uses the same sett year after year.

When enlarging a tunnel a badger will loosen the earth with rapid strokes of its forelimbs, and then use its claws as rakes.
