Badgers have never had a higher profile – the attempt to cut back on their numbers to prevent the spread of TB among cattle remain a political hot potato, and the noctural animals often come to a grisly end on our roads.
But despite the efforts of BBC wildlife programmes like Springwatch and Autumnwatch, how much do we really know about them?
If you’d like to know more, make your way to the National Trust’s Ashridge Visitor Centre from 3pm to 4.30pm on Saturday afternoon.
You’ll be able to learn all about badgers and how to watch them in this illustrated talk.
Tickets are £7 for adults with Friends Of Ashridge getting a £1 reduction, but booking is required – call 01442 851227 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
