I am very proud to have received this glass badger from the Badger Trust - but somewhat humbled to have been presented it by Jean Thorpe, the Badger Trust's Ryedale representative, who does more anyone I know to protect badgers.
I was awarded it for providing evidence in court last year that helped to convict a gang of badger baiters.But my actions pale in significance compared to the work that Jean Thorpe does every day to protect these shy wild creatures.

The very best thing about it is the amount of light that now comes into the studio.
And the view!!!!!

When I spotted a pair of little owls inspecting rabbit holes for their nesting potential in Thixendale, I decided to show them some other potential properties.
It turned out that the hole in the ash was completely blocked up with old leaves so I set about giving it a spring clean and then sat back to see if they could be persuaded to change their minds about the rabbit hole, which was very exposed.
Up it comes!
