TWT 30 Days Wild_countdown_08 Wildlife Trusts Emily Coyte Memetic Drift #30dayswildI treated myself to a couple of nature books for #30dayswild, one of them being Badgerlands by Patrick Barkham. I wanted to understand more about these curious snuffling beasts and our interactions with them throughout history. The book is delivering this in spades, from what I’ve read so far – I’m about half way through.

As a farmer’s daughter and wildlife enthusiast both, I was particularly curious to see how Patrick would cover the thorny issue of the badger and bovine TB amongst other complex issues. I must say, I’m impressed at his sense of perspective and compassion for all sides, human and animal.  Badgerlands is definitely a recommended read – especially outside!

    Love the quiz, now I have the badger song in my head though! Can’t decide if that’s a good or bad thing.
    I’m reading Patrick Barkham’s new book about the coast protected by the national trust’s Neptune campaign. I recommend a read.
