Information on badgers from The Mammal Society here
When our webcam is running, visitors can see a family of
badgers in real time, as they leave their setts at dusk in search of food and return
before dawn. It is hoped that the webcam will be able to capture other badger
activities, such as sett excavations and social interactions.
Because badgers are mostly active at night, the webcam must
be able to "see in the dark".
The images below were obtained while testing a number of
different types of camera equipment, including one which uses infrared light to see the
badgers under low light conditions.
