Badger

Here at Ruberslaw Wild Woods, we share our countryside with a huge variety of Wildlife - one of our most common visitors, is the Badger.

Badgers are nocturnal animals, which means they sleep during the day and are awake at night. Badgers dig systems of underground tunnels called 'Setts', which are often used by generations of badgers for 100s of years!

Several campers have reported night time badger activity around the campsite, including;

  • A Badger observed taking museli from a tent in the walled garden.
  • Chasing a badger off Pitch 3.
  • A Badger heard rummaging through a bin bag which had been left outside a tent.

We love the wildlife here at RWWC, but Badgers can be bold, and a bit of a nuisance when there is food around. We therefore ask campers to take the following precautions:

  • Use hard containers/tupperware to store all food - especially in the tent!
  • Lift all food scraps, Dog Food, Rubbish etc
  • Zip up all tent accesses when leaving the tent and when sleeping.
  • Do not approach badgers! Be careful with children and this.
  • The badgers will retreat if they are chased away vigourously - although they can take some persuading!
  • Please report any Badger Activity in the campsite to a member of staff.

Living amongst nature is all part of the camping experience - have a look at the videos we captured of the Badgers bustling about the woodland.
