Thank you to the RSPB for agreeing to me publishing this book.
Trimbush, you really must read these articles. That article you refer to mentions how the badgter population increased but has stabilised in recent years. Certainly no mention of exploding population. Thank you for referring us to the article. Clearly a well thought out and long term research project in an area that has long had research projects on badgers, as this was one of the areas that Ernest Neal where active.
