Pale badger

Observed: 20th January 2011 By: ianjames
pale badger

Seen originally (photo) as a cub, around August last year. Now about twice that size! Almost albino - lovely pale golden colour, no black stripes anywhere. Didn't hibernate (whereas the 3 or 4 more normal badgers that visit us all did) - was spotted throughout December & January. Wondering what species it can be?
