Peak-badger
by bryanmccabe  18 Mar 2016
It's not that common to see a badger moving in the open during the day. Today, a badger crossed about 20m in front of us at a height of 590m on the approach to Knockowen from the east. A question to anyone with knowledge of these animals - is it unusual for a badger to venture to this altitude? What might have attracted it so high on Knockowen?

Of course we should not overlook the obvious - perhaps it is a keen peak-badger? Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/175/comment/18466/
