I visit a badger sett every night Most evenings I walk into a valley near my gallery in Thixendale, North Yorkshire, to watch badgers for my paintings. Over the years these wild animals have accepted me as one of their own and I have painted most of their portraits. In fact, I am now so much a part of their everyday lives that the cubs will let me sit amongst them, scrambling over my boots […]

Sleeping Badgers | Inspired by Watching Badgers Underground I have watched badgers for years but it wasn’t until I built an underground sett rigged with hidden cameras that I learned what happens when these mammals disappear below ground. Click here to read more about how I built a badger sett in my garden I offered to help rehabilitate three rescued badger cubs in this sett and this gave me the opportunity to study their behaviour […]

A New Climbing Frame Also Becomes a Playground for Wildlife Well before lockdown, when such things were possible, my wife Vick announced that she had found a bargain second-hand climbing framing for our daughters on Facebook. It was priced at £200 for a towered wooden structure with connecting walkways, swings, slides and a climbing wall. The wood alone would have cost more than that! And so, after a bit of arm twisting, we made several […]

badger painting of the week

Author:

Badgers live in deep burrows, known as setts, and only come out to forage at night. Their brief daylight forays make it difficult to get a good understanding of their characters and as a wildlife artist I’ve always wanted to learn more. So I built an underground badger sett and installed cameras into chambers within it in the hope that I could film their secret underground world. When I then learned of three young cubs […]

I’ve been visiting a badger sett in a valley on the Yorkshire Wolds for so long now that I have been accepted as part of the clan. Here is the story of how I got this totally wild family of badgers to accept my presence – and ended up being nicknamed a ‘badger whisperer’. Although I had been watching badgers at this particular sett for many years, the story reached a crescendo in the spring […]

Badger cubs come out from their underground setts in late May and you can see them playing and exploring in the evening summer sunshine until July. Robert E Fuller has a lifetime of watching cubs as they grow. He shares his tips on how to look out for them in the wild.   As we watch the countryside slowly springing to life, it’s amazing to think our largest and most distinctive wild carnivore, the badger, […]

Today is National Badger Day and so I thought I would share my paintings and my passion for these gentle creatures in the hope that I can convince people that they really are worth protecting. Although badgers are not endangered – like most of the species I’ve am raising awareness for  through my campaign #artsavingnature – they have been persecuted for centuries. In 2011, I found myself helping to convict some badger baiters after stumbling […]
