At the badger sett there were five adults and just one cheeky cub. Oddly, one of the sows had taken her two cubs away for the night. She must be feeling a little insecure. I saw her come back to the sett for a little while and dive into the burrow and then shoot back off up the hill where she must have stashed her cubs.
Let's hope she begins to feel a little more secure soon and brings the two cubs back. On the way back I looked in on the tree creepers and found them fast asleep with their heads tucked under their wings.
It was about 11.30pm and there were now five of them.
