What time of day please?

Just wondered what time of day this was taken please? I may be a cub of the year out foraging in the day because it has been so dry and badger food (earthworms, beetles, snails) have been hiding away recently waiting for the rain. Also, I cant quite see from the photo, but I think that maie badgers tend to have broader faces with shorter noses, while females have longer noses with narrower faces - best seen when you have both together to compare. Sexing badgers in the wild is very tricky, but some people have an eye for it. Great photo!

This one comes at about 9pm

This one comes at about 9pm at the moment, well before dark but when the light is fading a bit. It returns later with another badger, they feed close together, no fighting! This photo was at about 9pm.

I also think this is a juvenile, clean markings with no grey fur around the face.

hard to say the sex at this age but probably a female.
