Urban Badger

Over the last couple of nights it has been quite stormy with the thunder and lightening keeping me awake. Despite these storms it was still quite hot so I decided at about 2am to go to the kitchen for some water. As I looked out of the window I spotted something in the garden and to my surprise saw this little fellow.

So I grabbed my camera and managed to take this single shot before it trotted off. Now I know this is not the best picture of a Badger in the world, but for me just to see one in the wild is a privilege.
