I mentioned that my efforts to track down and watch badgers after they have left the sett have only been quite fleeting so far. Well, things are going to change.
To celebrate my 2½ week anniversary in my new job, I’ve bought myself a night vision scope. Check out this bad boy:
I haven’t tried it out properly yet, only around the garden, but it really does work. The image is green and a bit fuzzy but you can see in the dark. This could potentially change my badger watching habits a lot. I’m definitely going to spend some time out in the fields this weekend.
If people think it’s suspicious that I go out in the evenings with a camouflage jacket and a pair of binoculars, what on earth will they think about me going out with a night vision device too?
