two badgers

I'm building a collection of badger photos from my garden in the hope that I will be able to identify individuals. Their colouration is one feature of interest as this picture shows.

Good luck

with your obs.Have had some good views & some varied shots over the years.Have made a few lightning sketches whilst they have been feeding here .Colour has varied & is easier when they are dry.Head stripes, ear damage and tail shape as well as feeding posture have helped.Some have been far more timid than others too.We are near 2 setts so have heard some awful fights & had 1 poorly one that seems to have recovered.
