Badgers foraging

Join our Trainee Reserve Officers for an evening of badger watching from our Badger Hide at Egleton

The hide is situated close to the badger set and here you can enjoy fantastic views as our resident family venture out on their evening forage.

The Badger Watch evenings start at around dusk and go on for approximately 2 hours.

Please be at the Car Park at Anglian Water Birdwatching Centre (LE15 8BT) at 6.00pm – you will then be escorted to the hide – a short 3/4 minute walk away.

Not only do you have a chance to see badgers but also other nocturnal creatures and previous highlights include Tawny Owl, Barn Owl, Bats, Foxes and Muntjac Deer.

Our Badger Watches are open to all ages. We leave it to the parent’s discretion as to whether or not a Watch is suitable for their child, bearing in mind we have to sit and be quiet for over two hours.

Badger Watches will go ahead in all but the most extreme weather. In the unlikely event that we have to cancel a Watch we will ring you in advance and re-arrange another date.

Cost is £10 per person: Cameras are allowed  but no flash photography please: Torches are a good idea but not essential: please wear suitable clothing, it can get quite cold the in the autumnal evenings

We meet in the car park at Egleton (LE15 8BT) at the specified time. (please be aware that times vary for each Badger Watch in accordance with sunset times).
