Dog walking today in one of the intervals between showers, in Ballyarr Woods. There were some lovely effects from sunlight shining through all the drops of water on the trees but the iPhone doesn't really do them justice. I'd have needed a long lens. I also found what I think may be a badger's set, though I've never seen one before. The hole is about 10 inches across and the earth is freshly scraped out. I saw what I think is a disused one nearby, another time. I found more beautiful fungi, too.

Hmmmmph!
Well the hole is the right shape anyway, i.e. wider than it is tall. Any dung piles to be found?

No dung piles. I had a quick look. The dog wasn't particularly interested, either. He just sniffed around a couple of nearby trees. Maybe they are re-developing an old sett. They've been NAMA'd?
