Badger-Watching in Mid Wales

Some video footage which I took recently on a lovely sunny evening in mid Wales. I was in the hide with ten others, most of whom were taking photos, so that is the clicking you can hear in the background:

A Frog On The Footpath

I almost trod on this frog as I was walking home on February 27th, as it crossed the footpath in front of me. After I'd taken some footage and put my camera away, I notice it had hopped into the road and looked likely to meet a grisly fate under the wheels of a passing car, so I picked it up and carried it to the other side. It thereupon tried to climb a vertical concrete wall, before giving up on that and sitting bewildered for a while in the middle of the pavement, where it was almost squashed by several passers-by. I picked it up again, and found an area of long grass and undergrowth, where I put it down, hoping it was a safe haven from the traffic.
Filmed with the infrared setting on my Panasonic HC-W850 camcorder.
