Spring Challenge

  • Badger watching - Come to the Wild Wood with a grown up just before sunset. Sit by the table and stay very still and very quiet; if you are lucky you may spot badgers coming out to feed.  Remember to check the wind direction; if the wind is blowing from you towards the badger’s sett they will smell you and won’t leave their sett.
